Civil Works & Stormwater Management Plans

The civil team at Waters Edge can also provide civil design services away from the shoreline. Capable of designing and producing engineering drawings and using the MMCD format, our team is happy to help with your local land development project.

Stormwater management has become an increasingly critical aspect of civil engineering design. As the environment around us changes, local property and infrastructure must be protected with proper stormwater management. The Waters Edge team is experienced with innovative stormwater management and treatment options, including hydrodynamic oil/grit separators, drywells, infiltration basins, etc.

Grading and Drainage Design – Kelowna, BC

Proper grading and storm water management systems are crucial to even the smallest developments. Having a properly graded site with appropriate stormwater management system can decrease material costs while simultaneously decreasing risk of damage to property and infrastructure during storm events.

Infiltration Systems – Kelowna, BC

Disposal of stormwater can be a challenge when there is no storm sewer to connect to – that’s when we must think outside the box and develop alternative solutions. Infiltration systems, like dry wells, have the unique ability to accept and dispose of excess stormwater runoff whilst contributing to groundwater recharge thereby maintaining the overall water cycle.

Major Overland Flow Conveyance

Protecting property and infrastructure during high magnitude storm events is critical for any municipality. Risk is minimized by properly sizing and designing major overland flow routes thereby safely conveying storm flows through sensitive areas. This includes culvert and channel sizing, erosion protection, and stormwater quantity control.
