Building Confidence: How to Design, Plan and Execute a Low Impact Development Monitoring Program

Thursday, April 5, 2018

CVC Head Office, Mississauga (View Map)

$275 CDN

ECAs and other approval permits frequently stipulate that compliance be demonstrated by facility operators, and this speaks to the need to effectively monitor performance. Monitoring LID and other stormwater features helps to ensure that they have been both properly designed and constructed, and that they function as intended. Failing to properly monitor LID practices can result in assuming ownership of underperforming stormwater practices which are unattractive, unsafe and noncompliant. This full-day workshop will cover material relevant to the successful monitoring of LID stormwater management practices.

This course is useful for municipal, consulting, conservation authority and other staff involved in the ownership or performance verification of one or more LID/SWM practices, ranging in size from small parking lot retrofits to large treatment approaches utilizing multiple features that service entire subdivision blocks. Instructors will provide course participants with comprehensive content on types of sampling equipment, calibration approaches and estimates of program costs. Tips, tricks, potential errors and proper monitoring techniques will be reviewed, and approaches for analyzing performance verification data will be covered. A field component will be included in the afternoon allowing participants to see an active monitoring set-up; please dress accordingly.
