Webinar: Lessons Learned in LID Construction (Previously Recorded)

Online anytime!
Estimated time requirement: 45 minutes
Instructor: Kyle Vander Linden

 

Course Description

Low Impact Development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source, is quickly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices.

Following proper LID construction methods minimizes costly repairs and ensures the LID practices works as designed. In this webinar, experts will share their experiences in constructing LID in Ontario and similar cold climate regions, and provide valuable lessons learned.

 

Who Should Attend?

This course is applicable to anyone involved in the design, construction, and inspection of LID, whether it is in a large subdivision development or a small parking lot retrofit.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify how LID construction differs from the construction of a conventional stormwater management site.
2. Understand LID construction considerations from mass grading through final assumption.
3. Know the common methods for constructing LID practices and specifying their materials.
4. Be aware of common construction pitfalls and how to avoid them.
