Bioretention Standards – Another Tool in the LID Toolkit

National bioretention design and construction standards were developed as a National Research Council Canada’s Climate Resilient Buildings and Codes Infrastructure initiative. The standards were developed, under the auspices of the Canadian Standards Association Group, to provide a tool to support surface water protection and flood mitigation.

Proper stormwater management has become increasingly important as severe storm events become more commonplace, populations continue to increase, and development expands. Bioretention has been shown to provide many positive outcomes with respect to stormwater and the environment, the primary functions of which include: treatment of runoff; reduction of runoff volume; rate control; and groundwater recharge. These outcomes are strengthened by good Erosion and Sediment Control practices during construction of these systems and during construction of adjacent sites.

Ethics for Professionals
Group Watch Available!

Join two-time former IECA President, Dr. David T. Williams, to explore the challenge of workplace ethics and how to take a proactive stance, develop an effective and sustainable set of guidelines for your organization, and implement best practices for dealing with ethically challenging situations. In this presentation, we’ll discuss how to develop a strong and sustainable set of workplace ethics and guidelines designed to mitigate ethics creep, avoid legal implications, and build a solid, ethical foundation for a healthy workplace culture. We’ll explore common ethical topics and challenges and detail the best practices to utilize when faced with ethically challenging situations. We’ll also highlight the difference between a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics and review several effective example Codes of Ethics for both working professionals and public officials. And finally, we will go over real-life ethical situations that will get you thinking about what has been taught in the presentation.
