Event description

Description

THE SUMMIT: Join us for this 2-day summit to discuss the evolving role of ponds and wetlands in the stormwater management toolbox and have your say in what the future holds.

Download the program for both the Summit and TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES here.

THEME

We expect a lot from our ponds and wetlands. Ponds were introduced into the stormwater management toolbox in the late 1970s in Alberta for the purpose of controlling peak flows. Later, in 2001, they were required to be designed to also capture sediment. They are assumed to provide treatment for other contaminants.

Citizens expect ponds and wetlands to be amenities for visual pleasure and recreation. Altogether, this makes for a pretty tall order. How are we doing? What are the tradeoffs and opportunities? What is research telling us? How do we deal with operational and maintenance issues? Is there a place for low-impact development practices in wetland compensation? How about servicing strategies? What about developers, what is their perspective? Can we aim higher with how we integrate stormwater management into aesthetic and amenity expectations? And what about reuse?

Take this opportunity to hear and be heard!

KEYNOTE AND ESTEEMED GUEST

Jiri Marsalek, Emeritus Scientist - formerly Head, Urban Water Management Section Water Science and Technology Directorate, Environment and Climate Change Canada; and Professor of Urban Water, Lulea University of Technology (LTU), Lulea, Sweden

As one of the premiere authorities in the field of stormwater management, Jiri will provide a global context on the state of practice in Alberta and provide reflections on the breadth of conversation over the course of the event.

FORMAT

Day 1 will have a technical focus on research findings, innovations, operations, and will include an introduction to the Alberta Community Resilience Program's new Stormwater Guidelines.

Day 2 will have a policy and perspectives theme with the afternoon dedicated to introducing the potential role of low impact development and ample time for small group and panel discussion.

The findings of the event will be documented for future use.

EXHIBITORS

20 exhibitor booths are available and will be located in the room. There will be an additional lounge to take those in-depth conversations out of earshot.
