Innovations in Stormwater Management Video SeriesThe Master of Land and Water Systems program team has produced a series of videos that introduce the emergence of innovative designs and approaches to urban stormwater management. The series focuses on stormwater management at three different scales:
- Introduction to Innovative Stormwater Management (4:50)
- Innovative Stormwater Management at the Property Scale (15:35)
- Innovative Stormwater Management at the Neighbourhood Scale (14:19)
- Innovative Stormwater Management at the Watershed Scale (10:12)
- Map of Locations
Introduction to Innovative Stormwater ManagementUBC’s Master of Land and Water Systems program introduces how urban stormwater management has evolved from a convey and drain mentality to focusing on more infiltration on site and also water quality concerns.
Innovative Stormwater Management at the Property ScaleRain gardens and bioswales, green roofs and roofwater harvesting are explored.
Innovative Stormwater Management at the Neighbourhood ScaleThis video covers parking lot and road designs, as well as bioswales, detention ponds, constructed wetlands and associated issues with mosquitoes.
Innovative Stormwater Management at the Watershed ScaleThe final video in the series features effects of stream channelization and riparian buffer zones on urban water quality and flooding risks. It also shows how low impact designs at the property and neighbourhood scale can be integrated through a treatment train process.
