Duggan Dry Pond

Client City of Edmonton

Location Edmonton | Alberta

EDA provided landscape design services to complement the engineering of this stormwater pond retrofit project in South Edmonton. EDA designed and presented three options for landscape development to residents of the Duggan neighbourhood. With overwhelming support, the community selected the bioretention option as their preferred choice. With the addition of this non-traditional, low-impact development component of the storm pond, this initiative became a demonstration project for the City of Edmonton. Clear and detailed notes and drawings for the proper construction and protection of the bioretention area were seen by EDA as critical to the success of this project. To ensure a successful outcome, EDA assumed a hands-on approach to construction management during crucial stages of the build.
