Advanced Stormwater Management Seminar. The focus of this seminar will be enhancing the attendee's knowledge of the complex nature of Stormwater Management. The technical aspects of planning and design of stormwater management infrastructure are complex. Advanced computer models and practices are common place and the practitioner is expected to have an in-depth knowledge of this complex topic. This seminar will provide a view of the details of advanced analytical techniques and computer models along with limitations in their application. This seminar will provide a detailed introduction to model accuracy and model verification.

The topics to be covered include:
  • The evolution of computer model techniques
  • Rainfall data, IDF Curves,
  • Derivation of Design Storms
  • Hydrograph method and constraints
  • Introduction to soil physics and rainwater movement in watersheds
  • Hydraulic calculations and model parameters
  • Planning versus detailed design and steps in the implementation process
  • Continuous modelling
  • Water quality modelling
  • Statistical and Regional analyses
  • Rainwater management and green infrastructure
  • Question and answer / open discussion
Target Audience
The seminar will appeal to those engineers reviewing and undertaking complex model assessments and designs of urban infrastructure. At the conclusion of the seminar, it is expected that participants will be able to understand and apply the complex concepts of stormwater management in planning and design of urban infrastructure.
Some exposure to stormwater modelling using computer applications
The Instructor
Jim Dumont, P.Eng., Water Infrastructure Specialist
Mr. Dumont's experience extends over 35 years in all phases of design and construction of water resources projects which have included analysis of stormwater management infrastructure, and low impact design. Mr. Dumont’s training began in 1977 where he obtained a B.Sc. at the University of Alberta.  Mr. Dumont has undertaken to be the responsible for a variety of projects from planning studies that establish development criteria to detailed design of infrastructure and to multi-disciplinary environmental projects.  Throughout his career, Mr. Dumont has provided innovative ideas and approaches to give clients the best possible solution to their problems.
