We fund capital projects that allow a community to remove 60% of total suspended solids (TSS) or a significant amount of other contaminants (e.g., E.coli, salt, grease) from its stormwater runoff. This funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes protect local bodies of water through stormwater treatment.
All Canadian municipal governments; Municipal partners applying in partnership with a municipal government.
Your capital project should capture and treat stormwater runoff, aiming to remove 60% of TSS, or a significant amount of other contaminants such as E.coli, salt or grease, from a neighbourhood’s stormwater runoff using a new build or retrofit solution. The amount to be removed from ‘other contaminants’ will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
This initiative should involve several properties or sites. We encourage you to implement low-impact solutions that engage and involve local residents. This funding is intended for community-run initiatives.
Examples of what you might implement:
- Permeable pavement
- Bioretention planters
- Prevention or treatment of contaminants associated with road salt
- Swales, retention ponds, infiltration techniques
- Catch basin inserts (e.g., sediment and grit-settling filters)
