Unitarian Congregation

Posted by | 0 Comments

This 2 year study initiated in 2013 at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga (UCM) evaluated the effectiveness of a newly installed bioretention.   The site sits on sandy soils which are ideal for Low Impact Development practices that infiltrate stormwater. Therefore a large bioretention cell was constructed in the center of the parking lot to filter and infiltrate rainwater running off the parking lot.

Case Study

The UCM site is also grouped with 7 other Public Lands sites for a larger monitoring program.  The sites were grouped together because they are all classified as bioretention features and are located on the same land-use type, but each site was designed and implemented differently making them individually unique. The objectives of this report are to analyze the meteorological conditions and water quantity data of the eight Public Lands sites.
