Urban stormwater management and the planning and design processes are becoming increasingly complex. This seminar provides an in-depth review of advanced topics that are important to implementing stormwater management plans and designs. A wide range of topics that are often given little consideration will be examined and their utilization in advanced urban systems will be demonstrated using sample calculations.

Seminar Objectives

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.

Seminar Series

This seminar is the second of a series that will cover the complex topic of stormwater management. The complete series includes:

Due to the complex nature of the topic there will be limited review of material presented in the other seminars.

Prerequisites

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: climate.weather.gc.ca/prods_servs/engineering_e.html. Please note that this application requires that Google Earth Pro be installed on the computer.

Seminar Outline

  • 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
