May 2017 

May 9 Workshop: Erosion and Sediment Control Workshop: Gain a better understanding of the importance and rationale for good erosion and sediment control, an increased knowledge of the various types of best management practices available, alternative options for dealing with problematic sites and key recommendations for protection of Low Impact Development (LID) practices. Instructor: Jill Attwood. Location: London, Ontario.

May 10 Training: Properly Construct LID Stormwater Managment Practices: Training covers LID installations ranging in size from small parking lot retrofits to large subdivision developments that are fully reliant on LID approaches to stormwater management. Instructor: Kyle Vander LInden. Location: Toronto, Ontario.

May 24 Webinar: Event-Based Monitoring and Modelling of Soil Loss from Southern Ontario Basins during Pre-Development and Development Activities: his webinar summarizes the results of two years of field investigation and water quality data analysis intended to help address this question and improve the state-of-the-art of erosion and sediment control (ESC) design. Instructor: Bill Trenouth.
