Mill Creek (aka Pembroke Canal) is a watercourse that drains much of the central valley of Bermuda towards the Great Sound. Associated Engineering completed a Flood Mitigation Study to identify the most beneficial hydraulic improvements to the creek and outlet to the sea.
Responding to severe erosion in John Matthews Creek ravine, and resulting sediment deposit that threatened downstream infrastructure and fish habitat, we developed an innovative restoration design. The ravine restoration used considerable fill and native vegetation to create a stable, step-drop profile, reducing erosion and encouraging fish migration. A diversion structure and pipe below the channel ensures baseflows, while eliminating excessive flows from the creek.
Rainwater management amenities, such as rain gardens and bio-swales are used to offset the hydraulic impacts of densification, development and increases in rainfall driven by climate change. Associated Engineering undertakes integrated Stormwater Management plans on a regular basis. These plans often include identifying appropriate source controls such as rainwater management amenities, best management practices, and minor and major flow management.
Associated provides a full spectrum of water resources services ranging from watershed planning to design of hydraulic structures. Our staff bring state-of-the-art modelling techniques including one-, two-, and three-dimensional dynamic modelling to ensure we apply the right tools for the project. By integrating Geographical Information Systems (GIS) into our planning and analysis activities, we provide comprehensive solutions that help our clients make informed decisions. We are committed to work with clients, owners and stakeholders to develop effective plans, strategies, and designs that are sustainable, robust, and resilient.
