Urban stormwater management and the planning and design processes are becoming increasingly complex. This seminar will explore advanced topics of concern in the planning and design of modern stormwater management systems in urban areas.
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Consider advanced technical issues in design of stormwater management planning and design, and
- Employ design methodologies learned in the course on your next stormwater management and drainage project.
This seminar will build upon the participant’s knowledge of stormwater management. Sample calculations with the application of climate data and pipe corrosion require the participant to bring a laptop computer with Excel and Environment Canada Data Explorer installed. The installation and user documentation for the Environment Canada IDF Google App can be downloaded from the website:
- Evolution of SWM
- Review of Rainfall and Climate Change
- Flood Protection
- Stream Protection
- Most Frequently Used Practices
- Computer Applications
- Hydraulic Concepts and Calculation Methods
- Water Quality
- Introduction to Hydrogeology
- Green Infrastructure Analysis and Design
- Culvert Design and Pipe Corrosion
The course will provide detailed information on the standards of practice and their limitations along with alternative state-of-the-art methodologies that can lead to more accurate application of scientific principles by engineers.
Consulting engineers, water resource planners, engineers employed by local, provincial, or federal government agencies. The information presented will be valuable to those in a position to review and approve drainage plans and design submissions.
Mr. Dumont's technical experience has been in the fields of civil engineering and water resources. His experience extends over 40 years in all phases of design and construction. Projects have included: municipal infrastructure, mitigation of urban impacts to the environment, hydrologic and hydraulic investigations, water quality assessment, land development, and construction.
Jim has been providing training seminars on stormwater management in BC for Engineers and Geoscientists BC since 2006 and for across Canada EPIC Technologies since 2010.
