The IECA Regional Roadshow is hitting the road for the summer of 2017. The first stop will be June 7, 2017 in Houston, Texas for the Low Impact Development and Green Infrastructure Workshop. Following that event the roadshow will move to Washington, DC on July 27, 2017 for the Urban Stream Construction Workshop. Both workshops will feature morning sessions followed by an afternoon field trip. Additional regional roadshows will be coming soon including Manchester, New Hampshire and Albuquerque, New Mexico!
Each year, IECA hosts poster presentations at its annual conference. At Environmental Connection 2017, we had 15 poster presentations. Click below to view the award winners for 2017!

This webinar will be held on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. 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. Construction of LID practices involves techniques and specifications that differ from traditional stormwater management construction practices. Failing to follow proper LID construction methods can result in barren bioretention landscapes, clogged infiltration practices, uneven permeable pavements, and ultimately costly post-construction repairs. This course is applicable to anyone involved in the design, construction, and inspection of LID, whether it is in a large subdivision development or a small parking lot retrofit. Instructors will take participants through each step of the LID construction highlighting potential errors and explaining proper techniques. Participants will also receive recommendations for specifications and tender contracts. The experienced instructors will present valuable lessons learned from examples in Ontario and similar cold climate regions.
