Introduction to LID – Southwestern Ontario Training

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Gemini Sportsplex , Strathroy (View Map)

$100 CAD

Low Impact Development (LID) is an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source. Though new, this technique is quickly gaining traction in Canada.

This course will demonstrate how LID is different from traditional stormwater practices, and why it is becoming a necessary part of our infrastructure. Over the course of the day, participants will learn the fundamentals of LID and review common misconceptions about LID performance. It will also explain how to overcome common barriers to implementing LID, including planning, design, construction, assumption, operations and maintenance.

Participants will have a chance to review real world examples of LID projects through a series of case studies on residential low impact development sites. Course instructors will also review some of the decision support tools available to help implement LID projects, include the WIKI Design Guide, the LID Treatment Train Tool, and the LID Lifecycle Costing Tool.
