This seminar is the third of a series that will cover the complex topic of stormwater management. The complete series includes:
- Hydrology of Stormwater and Design;
- Advanced Topics in Stormwater Management; and
- Stormwater Detention Planning and Design.
Due to the complex nature of the topic, there will be limited review of material presented from one seminar to the others.
After attending this seminar, you will be able to consider technical issues related to stormwater management planning and design while balancing risks to people, property, and the environment.
There are no prerequisites other than an analytical mindset while previous exposure to the topic would be an asset. We recommend that participation in all three sessions will provide the greatest benefit to the participants.
- Overview of stormwater management
- Pond design criteria
- Catchment and site characteristics
- Overview of pond components
- Pond design considerations
- Operation, inspection, and maintenance
- Example of a step-by-step pond design
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, and 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.
