Low Impact Development Inspection, Maintenance and Monitoring Training

Full Day Course

Traditionally, stormwater management has been an end-of-pipe practice located on public property and maintained by public agencies. However, low impact development (LID) treats stormwater runoff at its source. This presents unique challenges for monitoring, inspection and maintenance. Experienced instructors will present valuable lessons learned from examples in Southern Ontario. They will show you how to integrate LID best management practices into stormwater infrastructure programs.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the importance of Low Impact Development (LID)
  2. The importance of stormwater management monitoring in the design, construction, assumption, operation and maintenance of stormwater infrastructure to ensure long-term performance
  3. Learn how to design an effective LID BMP inspection and maintenance program
  4. Understand cold climate protocols for inspection, testing and maintenance of seven types of structural LID BMPs
  5. Learn how to set up a monitoring program, including the importance of goals and stakeholder involvement to design the program
  6. Overview of in the ground case studies with real monitoring results
