Ponds were introduced into the stormwater management toolbox in the late 1970s in Alberta for the purpose of controlling peak flows. Later, in 2001, they were required to be designed to also capture sediment. They are assumed to provide treatment for other contaminants.

Citizens expect ponds and wetlands to be amenities for visual pleasure and recreation. Altogether, this makes for a pretty tall order. There are a lot of questions:

How do we compare, globally?
What tradeoffs and opportunities are there?
What is research telling us?
How do we deal with operational and maintenance issues?
Is there a place for low-impact development practices in wetland compensation?
How about servicing strategies?
What about developers, what is their perspective?
Can we aim higher with how we integrate stormwater management into aesthetic and amenity expectations?
And what about reuse?

Take this opportunity to hear and be heard!
