EVENTS & TRAINING

May 5 @ 9:45 am – 4:00 pm The Living City Campus at Kortright
The Solar and Wind Energy Electric System Introduction workshop is designed to introduce participants to the criteria for the selection of a solar electric (photovoltaic) or wind energy system. Participants will explore the fundamentals of photovoltaic and wind energy, including: theory, siting and site selection, components, best practices, costing, and a summary of Ontario’s photovoltaic Micro-FIT incentive program. The instructor[...]
May 6 @ 9:45 am – 4:00 pm The Living City Campus at Kortright
The Off Grid and Emergency Back Up Systems workshop connects the fundamentals of photovoltaic and wind energy production with the components required for back up systems for off-grid systems or emergency back up energy systems for homes. The topics covered in this course include charge controllers, batteries, inverters and generators, and are applicable to battery-based back-up power systems. In the[...]
May 15 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Black Creek Pioneer Village
As Bioretention is one type of LID measure that is designed to treat runoff from paved areas by using the natural properties of soil and vegetation to remove contaminants, water management practitioners need to be familiar with the ‘ins and outs’ of bioretention design including sizing and siting, inlet and outlet design, material specification, construction planning, as well as the[...]
May 15 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Black Creek Pioneer Village
ECAs and other approval permits frequently stipulate that compliance be demonstrated by facility operators, and this speaks to the need to effectively monitor performance. Monitoring LID and other stormwater features helps to ensure that they have been both properly designed and constructed, and that they function as intended. Failing to properly monitor LID practices can result in assuming ownership of[...]
May 23 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm University of Guelph
This one day training workshop is designed to certify attendees in the use of backpack Electrofishing equipment with the main emphasis being the safe use of backpack electroshocking units. This course will cover the fundamentals of electrical theory; and a practical component for which participants will be required to demonstrate safe electrofishing practices in the field. Attendees will be required[...]
Jun 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online Webinar
Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) has been collecting performance data from two newly constructed residential subdivisions within the Credit River Watershed. These two sites utilize a variety of LID stormwater treatment and storage features throughout the subdivision to manage stormwater.  All season water quality and quantity monitoring data from Wychwood and Meadows in the Glen will be presented to demonstrate the[...]

Sep 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online Webinar
This webinar will introduce and help orientate attendees with the revised, online Low Impact Development Stormwater Management Planning and Design Guide.  The guide was initially developed to provide engineers, ecologists and planners with up-to-date information and direction on landscape-based stormwater management practices; to support the continued health of streams, rivers, lakes, fisheries and terrestrial habitats across developed watersheds in Ontario.[...]
Oct 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Online Webinar
This webinar will focus on an innovative, current application of the Drainage Act in a pre-developed urban area as it pertains to the inclusion of low impact drainage features within the Credit River Watershed.  From project initiation to preliminary reporting and dispute resolution mechanisms, the Drainage Act offers a transparent framework that can be used to successfully get projects into[...]
