Stormwater Management Home
The Rumble Pond Adaptive Stormwater Infrastructure Project is part of Richmond Hill’s Stormwater Management Facility Rehabilitation Plan, which identifies stormwater ponds that have reached the end of their lifecycle and require rehabilitation. Rumble Pond, located at the northeast corner of Bathurst Street and Mill Street, is the third project to be implemented as a component of this program. Construction was completed in 2014.
This project earned Richmond Hill the 2014 Project of the Year Award in the 'Environment' category from the Ontario Public Works Association (OPWA). This award recognizes excellence in project management and partnerships.
Some of the unique features include filters that clean runoff water before it enters the pond, landscaping materials that allow water to absorb into the ground and adjustable controls that allow operators to monitor and regulate pond water levels. The facility also features recreational and educational space with walkways, benches, native vegetation, a pavilion, an island and interpretive signage for the community to learn from and enjoy.
