Stormwater impoundments are new features in urban landscapes, established in Canada since the mid-nineteen sixties. There has been a tremendous increase in the number of these water bodies. The Canadian experience with stormwater impoundments is examined by means of a questionnaire survey and personal interviews as a means of documenting their number, design characteristics, and concerns of maintenance and operation as currently used throughout Canada. The results of the study are presented and some of the areas of concern are highlighted.
