As we are all aware, the landscape around inflow and infiltration is changing quickly. With the support of an expert stakeholder committee, Norton is currently developing Guidelines to Undertake Flow Monitoring of New Construction, to be published fall 2021. Many municipalities have started to flow monitor new subdivisions over the past five years, and it is our understanding that this requirement will form part of new regulations in Ontario (and of course is making its way into national guidelines).
In preparation for the public consultation on this proposed new guideline (version 1), the industry needs to understand the background on why it is needed (the new Guideline itself will focus on the practicalities of doing the work).
This workshop will include a detailed presentation with time for questions, and cover the following topics:
• Review the issue of I/I in new subdivisions and the research that led to these findings
• Discussion of the issues and concerns raised by contractors, consultants, municipalities that contribute to this issue
• Detailed description of allowable I/I at inception and at end of life (trust me, this is not well understood)
• Issues with inspection, testing, and acceptance (note that this is not a technical session on how to do these, but rather the complexities around these)
• Latest reports on newly flooded subdivisions, legal issues and risk.
This technical webinar (not suitable for lay people or Councillors) is for you whether you are a junior engineer or a senior manager: there is lots to consider.
Stay tuned for Norton’s next Webinar, to be delivered in May, where I will present the research that underpinned the soon to be published Standards Council of Canada Seed Document.
The cost of this webinar is $249. per person (not per company).
