SWM PONDS THORNHILL WOODS
Vaughan, ON

CLIENT | Sugarbush Developments Limited

Working in collaboration with civil engineers, the development of storm water management ponds (SWM) within new community developments provide surface run off storage and storm water recharge while providing ecological habitats for wildlife. Of particular importance is the use of moisture tolerant, native plant species suited to perform under the fluctuating levels of water conditions throughout the year. Lookout points and informal trails along the periphery of the ponds also provide passive recreational opportunities for residents of the community.
