Webinar: Advancing Adaptation in Practice: Innovative Solutions for Stormwater Management in a Changing Climate
Thursday, March 24, 2022, 1-2pm EST
Canadian municipalities continue to grapple with the impacts of climate change, including increased variability in precipitation leading to localized flooding. Innovative stormwater management approaches, including Low Impact Development (LID) approaches such as natural and nature-based solutions, are needed in order to ensure continued service delivery under a changing climate.
Please join us for this webinar where you will learn about the following:
- How stormwater runoff can be more effectively managed via a systems-based, watershed-wide approach that includes locating Stormwater Control Measures (SCMs) on both publicly owned and privately-owned properties;
- New guidance that is available to help incorporate nature-based solutions into municipal stormwater infrastructure systems; and
- How the STEP Water Low Impact Development (LID) Training Program is helping to build the capacity of professionals to implement nature-based stormwater solutions.
