Master Drainage Plans

Master Drainage Plans (MDPs) are conceptual-level stormwater drainage plans, in support of Area Structure Plans, and prepared for large drainage areas serviced by (usually) a single outfall to a receiving water body such as the Bow River. MDPs are developed through the evaluation of alternatives that provide an acceptable level of service while meeting the objectives of over-arching Watershed Plans or Water Management Plans and satisfying any constraints imposed by topography, land uses, and land ownership. MDPs typically identify and locate major stormwater ponds, other BMPs, trunk sizes and servicing routes, overland drainage routes, water quality and wetland and stream habitat preservation requirements, and land requirements.
