Apr 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Low impact approaches to managing stormwater runoff are highly customizable and can be tailored to the opportunities and constraints unique to an individual site. But the persistent question remains “do they work”? To this[...]
May 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract This webinar summarizes the efforts of four organizations—the cities of Kitchener, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Credit Valley Conservation—to build a compelling business case for wide-scale GSI implementation. Each has financial, environmental, and social reasons for[...]
May 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract What are the challenges and solutions to coastal erosion in Canada, and what we can learn from case studies across North America? How can improved erosion control practices bring about economic, environmental and community[...]
Jun 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Conventional pollutants in stormwater include total suspended solids (TSS), nutrients, and heavy metals, but increasingly, attention has been drawn to emerging pollutants such as microplastics and trace organic chemicals associated with household or industrial[...]
Jun 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract The Fletchers Creek Sustainable Neighborhood Action Plan (SNAP) was endorsed by Brampton City Council and CVC Board of Directors in 2019. The plan aims to bring together local residents and community leaders to make[...]
Sep 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Green Streets enhance the City’s right-of-way through the implementation of Green Infrastructure (GI), such as permeable pavers, storm water tree pits, and bioretention facilities. Maintenance and operations of GI assets is critical to enable[...]
Sep 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Tree pit systems integrate common street trees with stormwater management as a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional “end of pipe” practices in achieving volume control and nutrient reduction, as well as providing uncompacted[...]
Oct 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract The Ontario government’s Flood Strategy includes recommendations to further enhance natural hazard policies in the 2020 Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) and to update existing technical guidelines. As flooding and erosion hazards are inextricably linked,[...]
Nov 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Integrating nature based solutions into urban infrastructure has become an important policy objective to mitigate climate change impacts and make a more resilient urban landscape. However urban waterfront sites present several challenges which require[...]
Nov 25 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract Over the past few years, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) has installed five successful rain gardens at schools within the Credit River watershed and has received numerous requests from schools, teachers, and parents for additional[...]
Dec 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online
Abstract The LID Stormwater Management Planning and Design Guide Wiki was launched in March 2019 as a joint initiative of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, Credit Valley Conservation and Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority. Developed[...]
