 Collingwood’s cluster of tech companies are piloting a unique approach to stormwater management using an interconnected set of devices.  Known as the Stormwater Collingwood Pilot Project, a group of companies specializing in water related technologies came together several years ago to solve a problem…reducing the amount of water that comes off houses during major storm events, and then spills into stormwater systems.  They hypothesized that if water could be better managed at the house ‘lot’ level, there could be a significant decrease in spikes the Town’s stormwater systems experience.  And there could be additional spinoff benefits, including lowering the risk of flooded basements.
