At the conclusion of the seminar, it is expected that participants will be able to understand and apply complex concepts of stormwater and rainwater management in planning and design of urban infrastructure.
- Rainfall data,
- IDF Curves,
- Derivation of design Storms
- Climate change
- Computer applications
- Hydrograph method and constraints
- Hydraulic concepts and calculation methods
- Water quality modelling
- Introduction to soil physics and rainwater movement in watersheds
- Watershed assessment
- Regional and statistical analyses
- Water Balance Methodology in Rainwater management
- Green infrastructure analysis and design
- Question and answer / open discussion
The seminar will appeal to those engineers reviewing and undertaking complex stormwater and rainwater management assessments and designs in an urban setting.
A basic understanding of stormwater and rainwater management using computer applications would be valuable.
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 computer 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 been responsible for a range of projects from planning studies that establish development criteria to detailed design of infrastructure and to multi-disciplinary projects.Throughout his career, Mr. Dumont has provided innovative ideas and approaches to give clients the best possible solution to their problems.
