Day 2 – Practical Guidance on Inspecting and Maintaining LID
Instructors: Jen Hill (TRCA) and Dean Young (TRCA)

Municipalities already face significant challenges in tracking, inspecting and maintaining their own conventional stormwater infrastructure while ensuring practices on private property are also adequately maintained. Integrating green stormwater infrastructure like low impact development (LID) best management practices (BMPs), into municipal asset management programs presents additional challenges, but ways to overcome them do exist. Participants will learn  essential steps in program design, inspection and testing protocols, and the specific maintenance needs for common types of LID BMPs. Experienced instructors will impart valuable lessons learned from Ontario case studies and life cycle cost comparisons for each type of LID BMP.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify components of stormwater infrastructure asset management programs that are critical for developing the capacity to manage LID BMPs
2. Recognize key components of LID BMPs that require inspection and maintenance and equipment needs
3. Estimate the inspection and maintenance costs of LID BMPs over their operating lifespan using available guidance and life cycle costing tool

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.
