Planning and Executing Stormwater Retrofit Studies Using EPA SWMM5/PCSWMM Workshop

It has been concluded that broader issues related to urban flooding, instream water quality and watershed health cannot be adequately resolved without addressing pre-existing legacy development areas within the Credit River watershed.

The Credit Valley Conservation Authority (CVC), in conjunction with CHI, is offering a specialized workshop providing the background knowledge to successfully plan and execute a retrofit feasibility study for an existing area lacking stormwater quantity and quality controls. This workshop presents the challenges and opportunities associated with a retrofit feasibility study, complemented with a recent retrofit case study and detailed SWMM5 model exercise
