One Day Erosion and Sediment Control Workshop

$60.00
Mar 2 2017, 8:30am to 4:00pm

The practice of erosion and sediment control (ESC) during construction is a critical component necessary for the protection of the natural environment including sensitive water bodies, terrestrial habitat and aquatic ecosystems. The success of any construction site ESC strategy depends on a comprehensive, site specific ESC plan followed by effective installation and ongoing maintenance of the proposed ESC measures. Proper knowledge and training for all individuals involved in the ESC process, from tendering to design to installation and inspection, is a key step toward improving industry practices.

Low Impact Development Construction, Inspection, and Maintenance Workshop

$60.00
Mar 29 2017, 8:30am to 4:30pm

Low impact development (LID), an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters, and retains runoff at the source, is quickly becoming the new norm in Ontario. Traditionally, stormwater management has been an end-of-pipe practice located on public property and maintained by public agencies. However, low impact development (LID) is fundamentally different because it is intended to treat stormwater runoff at the source.

Repairing Incised and Degraded (Urbanized Streams) - Natural Channel Design, Biotechnical Techniques and Case Studies

$450.00
Jun 5 2017, 9:00am to Jun 6 2017, 4:00pm

This two-day course will present the current state of the art with regards to environmentally-sensitive stream and river repair and bank protection.  The training will combine classroom and hands on learning - combining theory with the practical applications and lots of case studies. The classroom sessions will cover topics like basic fluvio-geomorphology, stream forms and processes, Proper Functioning Condition, hydromodification and environmentally-sensitive techniques. 

Erosion and Sediment Control Field Training

$195.00
Jun 7 2017, 9:00am to 4:00pm

The practice of erosion and sediment control (ESC) during construction is a critical component necessary for the protection of the natural environment including sensitive water bodies, terrestrial habitat and aquatic ecosystems.    The effectiveness of any well designed ESC plan is only as good as the installation and maintenance of the proposed ESC measures.  Targeted, hands-on training to demonstrate appropriate installation methods and long-term maintenance requirements is key to improving industry practices.
