By definition, a subdivision is the process of taking a larger parcel land and dividing it into smaller projects, often more affordable parcels.
In these efforts each new parcel created will receive their own utilities (potable water, sanitary sewer, storm water, electricity, natural gas and communications).
Storm water can be very destructive and as duration and intensity continues to increase here on the west coast of Canada there is a need to ensure that the municipal and privately owned and operated storm water infrastructure is upgraded to handle these impacts.
Whether this is increasing flow rates through existing ditch lines and creek beds, adding storage ponds to reduce velocity or increasing culvert diameter to again slow the acceleration and the velocity down and permit an increased volume or to allow amounts of debris to collect and not immediately block the flow these are all things that must be considered in these upgrades.
Arrowsmith Project Management Limited has been involved in all of these scopes from municipal storm water outflows to forestry access roads and large bore culverts being installed. Our common sense approach to these solutions are often greatly appreciated as they will save the team money and permit increased progress on other fronts in the overall project.
