Lovers Creek Stormwater Management Facility Retrofit (LV05)

The tributary of LV05 has eroded considerably​ since the construction of the stormwater management facility.  The City is working to repair and restore the creek and the online pond from Highway 400 to Bayview Drive.

Project Updates

October 2021Construction is nearing completion. The creek and pond restoration has been completed and the site is starting to look green again. The maintenance access and retaining wall have also been constructed. Plantings and fencing will be going in over the next month to finish up the project.    

Previous Updates

July 2021: Construction is well underway. The phragmites (an invasive plant) has been removed, maintenance access path has been constructed and the contractor is working on the creek reconstruction portion of the project.

March 2021: Project moving to construction

June 2020: 90% Detailed Design package under development.

Project Features

The purpose of this project is to resolve the erosion that is occurring and provide a better maintenance access for the site.  The ravine portion of this site is a steep valley, and it receives a lot of uncontrolled runoff from the upstream commercial areas. This has resulted in the erosion in the ravine. The project will use a combination of stone and vegetation to slow the water down and keep the soil in place.

As the pond features were originally constructed over 30 years ago, they have also degraded and are no longer preforming as originally intended. These features will be replaced with new materials. A maintenance access will be created for City staff to maintain this pond when future work is needed.  

After construction, planting of trees and shrubs will be used to restore and naturalize the area.
