    02.May.Tuesday
    Forester University Banner

    2:00 PM-3:00 PM
    2017/05/02

    This webinar will examine how the protection of watershed and stream health in the urban environment ultimately depends on maintaining the natural proportion of rainwater entering streams via three pathways: overland runoff, shallow interflow and deep groundwater flow. We’ll explore how Water Balance Methodology provides an effective way to assess potential impacts resulting from urban development by allowing you to accurately mimic streamflow and duration in your urban infrastructure design. Presenter(s): KIM A. STEPHENS, M.ENG., P.ENG. & JIM DUMONT, P.ENG., P.AG. Learn more and register.

    Depave Paradise Logo Small

    7:30 PM-8:30 PM
    2017/05/03

    There is a new movement afoot in communities across North America.  Communities are coming together to remove unwanted pavement and creating vibrant green spaces. The hands-on depaving process captures the hearts and energy of volunteers who work together to make schoolyards and neighbourhoods more livable and resilient.  In this presentation, Alix Taylor will tell us more about the depave movement, and indicate what one needs to get involved in this important greening initiative. Alix is Green Communities Canada’s Water Programs and Communications Manager, and is responsible for overseeing Depave Paradise, Canada’s depave initiative.

    2:00 PM-3:00 PM
    2017/05/11

    This webinar will provide an in-depth overview of the first ever Environmental Impact Bond (EIB). This new “Pay for Success” financing structure was developed by DC Water to privately fund the construction of green infrastructure to manage stormwater runoff as part of DC Water’s Clean Rivers Project. The EIB is structured to limit financial risk to DC Water if the performance of the green infrastructure is less than anticipated and financially reward investors if the performance exceeds expectations.

    Removing asphalt and concrete at neighbourhood workbees is an exciting new trend that renews neglected urban spaces. The hands-on depaving process captures the hearts and energies of community members who work together to make their surroundings more liveable. Depave Paradise is a project of Green Communities Canada and its local partners in communities across Canada. Volunteers and neighbourhoods remove unwanted pavement and planting gardens filled with native species in its place. Contact Montreal Urban Ecology to get involved with this May 13 depave event!

    2:00 PM-3:00 PM
    2017/05/23

    This webinar will provide a deep dive into DC’s Department of Energy and Environment Stormwater Retention Credit (SRC) Program. The SRC program, established on July 19, 2013, is the first of its kind in the nation. The program creates a market for voluntary stormwater retrofits in Washington DC. The program allows regulated sites to meet their obligations by buying SRCs from unregulated properties elsewhere in the city. Other District properties generate SRCs by exceeding their own regulatory requirements or voluntarily installing retention infrastructure such as green roofs and rain gardens. The SRC market provides flexible and cost-effective compliance options for the regulated community as well as financial incentives to voluntarily increase stormwater retention in the District.
