Detailed design report : stormwater retention system Chase, Randy; Cheung, Julian; Mollenbeck, David; Richardson, Nick; Redekop, Colby; Xu, Wendy


CivGen Engineering has been contracted by the UBC Botanical Garden to provide a detailed design of a sub-surface stormwater storage system for the UBC Botanical Garden. The garden's irrigation system is currently sourced entirely from potable water. Two of the University of British Columbia's four catchment areas currently drain directly through or adjacent to the Garden. The stormwater retention tank design discussed in this report will reroute UBC's stormwater to meet the irrigation needs of the Garden.
