This seminar is the second of a series that will cover the complex topic of stormwater management. The complete series includes:
- Hydrology of Stormwater and Floods
- Advanced Topics in Stormwater Management
- 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.
- Provision of flood protection and the use of statistics in risk management
- Review of climate change requirements
- Culvert design and corrosion assessment
- Stream protection
- Hydraulic concepts and calculation methods
- Water quality impacts and design methods
- Most frequently used mitigation practices (BMPs)
- State of the Art BMP planning and design
- Risk management, liability, and meting expectations
- Review of report writing and review requirements
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.
