Co-Operative Stormwater Management Initiative

CSMI members include: Calgary Regional Partnership, Chestermere Utilities Incorporated, City of Calgary, Rocky View County, Town of Strathmore, Wheatland County, Western Irrigation District. A report was commissioned with conceptual ideas as to how these partners could work together to develop a collective approach to stormwater management, and can be found below.

Storm Ponds
