Urban stormwater management and the planning and design processes are becoming increasingly complex. Computer models are replacing the once common analytic practices. This seminar will provide an introduction to the details of analytical techniques and computer model data requirements.

The topics to be covered include:
  • The evolution of computer model techniques
  • IDF Curves, and design storms
  • Rational and Hydrograph method comparison
  • Equations and model parameters
  • Model calculations and parameters
  • Planning versus detailed design and steps in the implementation process
  • Regulatory requirements and regional differences
  • Rainwater management and green infrastructure
  • Prescriptive versus Performance based design
  • Question and answer / open discussion
The purpose of this course is to provide the participant with a basic knowledge and understanding of stormwater management and infrastructure design. The course will cover hydrologic and hydrologic analyses as applied in an urban setting.
Target Audience
The seminar is intended to provide practitioners with the knowledge to help bridge the gap from the rational method into complex computer modelling. As well, it will appeal to those engineers working in urban infrastructure planning and design and the land development industry. At the conclusion of the seminar, it is expected that participants will be able to understand and apply the concepts of stormwater management in planning and design of urban infrastructure.
A basic understanding of drainage concepts would be valuable.
The Instructor
Jim Dumont, P.Eng., Water Infrastructure Engineer
Mr. Dumont's experience extends over 35 years in all phases of design and construction of water resources projects which have included river engineering, stormwater management, 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.
