Piecing it to Together: Monitoring to Inform Performance E-Learning Course

This is a free course!  Online anytime!
Estimated time requirement: 1 hour
Produced through the Climate Change Adaptation Platform, with support from Natural Resources Canada.

Course Description

To assess the performance of stormwater management or low impact development practices, some degree of in-field monitoring is required. This can include simple to complex activities depending on the questions you are trying to answer about your practice. This self-directed
e-learning course will introduce participants to why and how stormwater or low impact development features are monitored. Using a bioswale as an example, participants can select various components of the feature to learn more information, as well as four common types of monitoring. While this module uses a bioswale as an example, concepts could be applied to other LID features.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the key components of a bioswale, and what can and should be monitored to determine performance.
  2. Introduction to different types of monitoring (assumption, compliance, performance and adaptive).
  3. Understand how monitoring informs key questions such as site design, function, lifecycle, etc.
