There are numerous drivers for implementing stormwater runoff volume targets, loading objectives, and other measures to achieve resilient outcomes. But when do you implement what and to what level of stringency? What are various jurisdictions across North America doing and why? What tools are being used and where should we go from here? 

Join us for an afternoon of presentations from jurisdictions across North America and opportunities to discuss the need for and merit of different approaches. We are pleased to have presenters from British Columbia, Ontario, Minnesota and Colorado who will share their diverse experiences with us.

Drivers to be considered include level of service, protection against overland flooding and surcharge conditions, fisheries and habitat protection, small stream and wetland protection, source water and groundwater protection, and prevention of harmful algae blooms. 

This is not a modelling course nor a prescription...but a consideration of drivers, tools and future directions.

In partnership with the Water Environment Federation Canadian Stormwater Institute. The workshop cost is $175 plus GST. Certificates of attendance will be issued for 3.5 hours.
