The Monahan Drain Constructed Wetland is an online storm water facility located in Kanata. Site improvements are required in order to bring the facility into compliance with MOE guidelines for storm water ponds. The 25ha site has an existing trail system that is well-used by local residents throughout the year.

The project team is exploring two approaches in the site’s restoration: reinstatement as a wet pond and reinstatement as a hybrid pond including wetlands. Both scenarios have to address the extensive shoreline erosion and water quality while enhancing passive recreational opportunities.
