Stormwater Management - Design, Inspection and Operation/Maintenance of Stormwater Control Facilities
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Jan 30 - 31, 2019 /
Course Code: 09-0110-2363
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- examine design applications in new and existing developments
- apply emerging techniques for stormwater quantity, quality and erosion control
- adjust to your changing role and responsibility
- employ cost effective operation and maintenance methods
The success of long-term cost effective operation of a stormwater management facility depends on 1) the appropriate design, 2) an efficient inspection program undertaken during the construction phase and 3) the adoption of well organized operation and maintenance practices. This workshop describes all the above aspects of stormwater management by assisting the designer to produce a cost effective design, with low maintenance cost and long-term trouble free operation.
Similarly, the workshop will assist those involved in the operation and maintenance program to understand the design principles, the required performance of the facility and to ensure that the BMP facilities are operating at their maximum efficiency over it useful life.
