Day 1 – Critical Processes in LID Construction
Instructors: Kyle Vander Linden (CVC) and Jen Hill (TRCA)

Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices. Failing to follow proper LID construction processes can result in barren bioretention landscapes, clogged infiltration practices, uneven permeable pavements, and ultimately costly post-construction repairs. Instructors will take participants through the principles of LID construction, highlighting potential errors, lessons learned from various Ontario projects and explain proper techniques.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the role and importance of proper construction, inspection and maintenance in an LID practice
2. Identify critical LID construction processes, inspection points and key principles
3. Learn common methods for constructing LID practices and associated materials required for LID construction.

This training event was produced through the Climate Change Adaptation Platform, with support from Natural Resources Canada. Registration fees have also been subsidized through financial support from the City of Thunder Bay.
