Atlantic Stormwater Initiative

Program Overview

Stormwater management is a concern for everybody, from property owners with flooding problems, to municipalities dealing with aging infrastructure, to communities concerned about water quality and environmental health.

What is stormwater, and what can you do?


What is Stormwater?

It can rain and snow (a lot!) in Atlantic Canada. But where does all that water go? And what does it take with it – pollutants, garbage, soil? Learn more about stormwater, and how it impacts you.


Low impact development methods can be implemented alone or in combination for effective stormwater management. Learn more about these specific methods, but let your imagination run free thinking of ways to combine them!

Tools for Property Owners

With an increase in future rainfall intensities predicted for Atlantic Canada, those damp areas on your property could soon become flooding concerns. Learn more about using low impact development methods to maintain a healthy, happy home.


Tools for Municipalities

Building a sustainable stormwater management system helps build a sustainable way of life. Create a more livable community, and forge valuable partnerships with neighbours, non-profits, municipal politicians, and community organizations.

Tools for Businesses and Communities

For the small and medium businesses that make up a major part of our economy, there are social, environmental and economic benefits to managing stormwater through green infrastructure. Learn more about these benefits to your triple bottom line.
