Event description

Description


Western Canada's premier interdisciplinary stormwater management conference is getting ready for you! We are pleased this year to offer a very full program in a single track over two days, featuring colleagues from Alberta, Minnesota, B.C. and Ontario. This year we are adding a poster hall, exhibitors reception, as well as our first-ever banquet. Last year's event attracted approximately 150-175 participants each day, and we anticipate a similar number this year.

He also oversees the development of decision support and life cycle costing tools to help guide the technology selection process and facilitate application of site scale measures aimed at reducing flood risk and improving runoff quality. Throughout his career, Tim has presented widely on urban runoff management and published over 40 scientific reports and journal articles on urban systems hydrology, watershed water quality and low impact development stormwater management. His team at TRCA has been accredited to conduct stormwater technology testing and verification in conformity with ISO ETV standards and has completed several technology verifications under the program.
