Low Impact Development Webinars
Overcoming LID Barriers – 10 Step Process
Low Impact Development (LID) is a stormwater management approach that while still relatively new to Ontario, is gaining a lot of traction. This webinar will present 10 steps that streamline the process of implementing LID. These ten steps will help you avoid the common issues and pitfalls encountered in designing, constructing and maintaining LID.
Lessons Learned in LID Construction
Low impact development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at source, is rapidly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Construction of LID practices involve techniques and specifications that differ from those of traditional stormwater management. Following proper LID construction methods minimizes costly repairs and ensures the LID practices works as designed. In this webinar, experts will share their experiences in constructing LID and provide valuable lessons learned.
Application of Certification Protocols
As low impact development practices become more commonly used, municipalities and property owners need methods to certify that these practices have been designed and constructed properly. Certification protocols ensure that knowledgeable personnel (e.g. third party inspector, design engineer or permitting agency) evaluate LID practices to ensure they have been installed properly before the contractor is released of responsibility. This webinar will teach you how to properly apply certification protocols to reduce risk to owners and avoid costly repairs.
Application of LID on Business and Multi-Residential Lands
Across Ontario, owners and operators of businesses, colleges, universities and multi-residential properties are facing seemingly competing issues: rising costs, the pressure to conduct operations sustainably and the need to manage stormwater on their properties in the face of increasingly unpredictable weather patterns and aging municipal infrastructure. Low impact development can help business and multi-residential properties address these issues. This webinar will focus on the business case for adopting LID on business and multi-residential lands and provide guidance, tools, and case studies to help retrofit properties of all sizes.
