Maber Flats Drainage Detention Design

District of Central Saanich
Maber Flats, in the District of Central Saanich, is the site of an historic wetland that has been drained and is used for agricuture. Aqua-Tex led a design team of professionals to design an agriculture drainage facility on the District's 11 ha portion of the site to support agriculture by reducing the magnitude and duration of flooding on surrounding lands, while providing wetland habitat during the driest parts of the year.
  • We design and build projects that are efficient, effective and affordable both for the owner and for the community. Smart development can provide both economic and ecological benefits and can enhance the communities in which we live and work. Our solid understanding of the science of freshwater ecology ensures that our projects go beyond looking green, and function properly in both the short and long-term. We believe in an integrated team approach to sustainable planning and design.
