Innovations in Stormwater Management Video Series
The 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
This series is used in UBC’s Urban Watershed Management course (SOIL 516), one of several online Watershed Management course offerings. This series is also useful for developers, students, real estate agents, municipal/regional planners, managers and engineers. Production of these videos is made possible by The Learning Centre at the Faculty of Land and Food Systems.
An accompanying report was published by the Canadian Water Network, one of the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) in Canada. You can access it here: Innovative Stormwater Management: Translating Science into Actions
Introduction to Innovative Stormwater Management
UBC’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 Scale
Innovative Stormwater Management at the Neighbourhood Scale
Innovative Stormwater Management at the Watershed Scale
The 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.
