lower sackville, NS
Two significant watercourses that are tributary to the Little Sackville River run through the development. One of which, Stoney Brook, contains fish habitat.
As part of the overall municipal services design, KVM designed a set of twin culverts equipped with baffles to allow fish passage. Also, due to the silty nature of the surrounding soil and close proximity to the brooks, KVM designed site specific erosion and sedimentation control measures to protect the brooks from contamination. The measures included a temporary stream diversion, interceptor ditches, vegetated buffers, and sedimentation ponds.
