Building Forward: How to Properly Construct Low Impact Development Stormwater Management

2018/03/07 8:30 AM - 2018/03/07 4:00 PM
Credit Valley Conservation, 1255 Old Derry Rd, Mississauga, ON, Canada

This full-day course is intended for Municipal Staff, Contractors, Consultants, but it is open for anyone involved in the design, construction and inspection of LID, whether it is in a large subdivision development or a small parking lot retrofit. Instructors take participants through each step of the LID construction process through to assumption/certification highlighting potential errors and explaining proper techniques. Participants also receive recommendations for specifications and tender contracts. Experienced instructors will present valuable lessons learned from examples in Ontario and similar cold climate regions. Learn more and register online.
