Sherbourne Common, Toronto | Water Channel with Biofiltration Bed – More than just a beautiful public space, Sherbourne Common is also the first park in Canada to integrate an ultraviolet (UV) treatment facility for neighbourhood-wide stormwater treatment into its design. Collected stormwater is treated in a UV Facility located in the basement of the park’s Pavilion and released from three dramatic art features into a 240-metre long water channel — or urban river — and back out to Lake Ontario.

Measham Leisure Centre Two beautiful retrofitted circular raingardens enhance the approach to Measham Leisure Centre whilst providing valuable water management functionality.  A linear wetland basin to the rear of the building treats and attenuates car park runoff before release to the adjacent brook. http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/measham-leisure-centre/ Centre, Leisure Center, Wetland, Water Management, Building, Basin

Goldhawk Road Urban street tree planting with SuDS functionality has been incorporated into this London high street improvement scheme.  Road runoff irrigates the trees and is then stored within the extensive structural tree root zone beneath the pavement with a flow-controlled discharge to the combined sewer. http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/goldhawk-road/ London, Tree Planting, Pavement, Trees To Plant, Tree Roots, Road, Street Trees

Parkside Civic Centre The Civic Centre at Parkside is a public realm scheme including a new Civic Centre, Civic Hall and Library. A fully infiltrating SuDS system has been implemented using permeable surface to manage the rainfall on the site, with overflow and exceedance routes to cater for exceptional rainfall events. All rainwater storage is at the surface within landscape features or underground within voided stone areas http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/parkside-civic-centre/ Mansions, Public, Public Realm, Structures, Landscape Features, System, Underground

Glenbrook Stream, Enfield A beautiful community landscape featuring new wetland basins, nested between trees, to treat polluted water, has been created from what was a neglected, rubbish-strewn and highly polluted stream corridor. http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/glenbrook-stream/ Lake, Enfield, Landscape, Revamped, Community

Riverside Court, Stamford This redevelopment on the site of an old electricity substation, in the centre of Stamford remains the first high density SuDS scheme in the UK to demonstrate both a full ‘management train’ for urban runoff and the contribution of SuDS to defining the character of the landscape in a development. http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/riverside-court-stamford/ Riverside, Density, Development, Stamford

Strutts Belper A lively community centre in Derbyshire is retrofitted with a landscape to match, in order to relieve struggling drainage systems that contribute to local flooding and pollution.  The design provides a variety of possible SuDS solutions - from examples of domestic raingardens, to run-off from car parking, and larger amenity storage basins http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/strutts-belper/ Stepping Stones, Sidewalk, Variety, Outdoor Decor, Basins

The new Science Block at Bewdley School was an opportunity to create a dynamic learning landscape that puts the flow and qualities of rainwater at centre-stage.  When it rains, a waterwheel, giant Torricelli tube and a tipping bucket all demonstrate scientific properties of water before feeding into rills, wildlife pond and raingarden that enhance the setting of the new building and provide valuable educational resource. http://sustainabledrainage.co.uk/projects/bewdley-school/ Stage
