Overcoming Low Impact Development Barriers in Stormwater

DURATION: 1.5 hours

This course will demonstrate how Low Impact Development (LID) is an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source. It is quickly becoming the new norm in Canada. This course will demonstrate how LID is different than traditional stormwater practices, and why it is becoming a necessary part of our infrastructure. It will also explore how to overcome common barriers to implementing LID, including planning, design, construction, assumption, operations and maintenance.

Following this session, participants will be able to:
1. Distinguish how LID practices are different from conventional stormwater practices.
2. Recognize commonly used LID practices.
3. Describe common barriers and solutions typically encountered in LID design, construction, assumption, operation and maintenance.
4. Identify what resources are available to assist in developing LID projects.

This course is delivered by Kyle Vander Linden, Water Resources Specialist with Credit Valley Conservation.
