This workshop will provide an overview of the Low Impact Development Treatment Train Tool (LID TTT) and an introduction to the updated Low Impact Development Planning and Design Guide.

Version 1.2.1 of the LID TTT is available on the STEP website, Learn more about the tool here; the Planning and Design guide is hosted at wiki.sustainabletechnologies.ca.

A walk through of the capabilities of the LID TTTT tool, case study examples, along with a Q & A and experimentation period will all be components of the morning workshop. In the afternoon participants will be led on an exploration of the design guide and invited discuss both content and navigation.

Development team representatives from the GTA CAs will be co-delivering this session.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is intended for practitioners preparing SWM Design packages to meet criteria and objectives for approval.

Learning Objectives?

1. Appreciate model criteria and rationale that supports the selection of preferred open-source and/or commercial license LID modelling tool(s) which effectively demonstrate design targets have been met.

2. Understand the capabilities of the LID Treatment Train Tool, utilizing EPA-SWMM as the engine, to estimate pre and post water balance, runoff volume control, peak flows, total phosphorus and total suspended solid loading and removals through the treatment train represented through walk through instruction and case study examples.

3. Recognize how an adapted LID TTT may be used to enhance discussions during preliminary planning efforts, and to be re-applied for final design and assessment (for approval, subject to pre-consultation input from relevant agencies)

4. Search, cite and contribute to the wiki- format of the Planning and Design guide.


Additional Information:

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptop (and maybe to download the LID TTT in advance). Both the LID treatment train tool, and the Planning and Design guide are digital tools and the workshops are interactive.

Lunch will be provided.
