Stewart Street

About This Project:

This project involves the conversion of 2.2m width of existing asphalt into rain gardens to capture, store, and treat surface runoff from the street and surrounding area construction on either side of Stewart Street between King Edward Avenue and Friel Street. Rain gardens are planted areas designed to improve water quality and reduce runoff using a combination of soil, plants and mulch to treat and absorb stormwater runoff. Rain gardens can be combined with boulevard extensions to serve multiple purposes including traffic calming, improved aesthetics and stormwater management. In the case of Stewart Street the objectives of this project were too;
· Decrease runoff volume for frequent storm events and improve water quality by treating local runoff
· Improve local drainage/reduce ponding
· Add greenspace and improve the aesthetic of the street
