APEGBC Sponsors Province-Wide Drainage Seminars that Complement “Beyond the Guidebook”

"There is a need for a new approach to hydrologic design. A key message is that a rainfall-based approach does not work effectively. This is why I advocate a runoff-based approach. Duration of discharge is important because it links directly to stream health. The ‘runoff-based approach' holds the key to assessing environmental impacts in watercourses and the effectiveness of mitigation techniques", stated Jim Dumont.

Going Beyond the Guidebook: City of Surrey Showcases Vision for Green Infrastructure on the Ground

In undertaking the Fergus Creek Integrated Stormwater Management Plan, the City of Surrey is pushing the envelope in pioneering the application of innovative approaches that it believes will achieve noticeable benefits over a 50-year planning horizon. The Fergus ISMP “goes beyond the Guidebook” because it is built around a science-based methodology that correlates runoff volume with stream health, reported Paul Ham.
