Balzac Area Shopping Mall, Balzac, Alberta, Canada

In 2010, Lafarge Pipe in Calgary, Alberta  produced a series of concrete box sections for use as an underground storage tank at a large shopping center parking lot near Balzac, Alberta. The purpose of these storage tanks was to allow for stormwater reuse on site as part of day to day operations.

The storage structure consists of three rows of seven boxes in parallel, each equipped with a manhole access entry. The ends of each row were capped with monolithic sections to limit the amount of pieces to be joined in the fi eld. In all, the structure is capable of storing up to 300 m3.

This example of stormwater reuse is illustrative of some of the key concepts outlined in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System® and low impact development. For more information on stormwater storage solutions, please contact your local Lafarge Pipe representative.
