Victoria International Airport Parking Lot

Instead of conventional catch basin and culvert designs in its parking lots, Victoria International Airport constructed rain gardens and swale ditches to collect run-off. The swale ditches help filter pollutants from parked cars and airside vehicles and equipment before pollutants are released into the storm water system. According to the CRD's Rainwater Management Tour, the parking lot expansion was designed to attenuate in 1 in 2 year storm events, and overflow routing was designed to handle a 1 in 100 year event.
