Municipal services are at the heart of any planned residential, industrial, or commercial development. Our municipal engineering services include the detailed design of underground services such as sanitary, stormwater, and water supply systems; overland stormwater drainage systems; and road networks, as an integral part of the subdivision development process. As part of our services, we also liaison with various municipal agencies and regulatory authorities.
With climate change causing more frequent and intense rainfall events, stormwater management plays an increasingly important role in the design of municipal service systems. SHM Canada is working hard to develop extensive knowledge of the terrain and rainfall patterns in order to better understand and manage stormwater flow. Specifically, we make an effort to incorporate existing topographic features into stormwater management plans to reduce high flow rates by retaining, detaining, and controlling discharge of rainfall runoff.
