The Canadian Underground Infrastructure Innovation Centre (CUIIC) is currently partnering with industry and academia on the Wetland Retention Project, dedicated to preserving natural areas in urban development. Our goal is to retain the existing wetland's unique characteristics instead of replacing it, utilizing a combination of on-site and upstream measures to manage urban runoff's hydrology and water chemistry.
Our pilot project involves experts specializing in civil, construction, ecology, hydrology, and chemistry. Over a five-year program, we plan to monitor some natural wetland, working to promote the preservation of natural features in new developments with a strong focus on environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
