Engineering Vegetated Roofing Systems to Optimize Stormwater Management 2.0

Free Webinar Presentation

February 23, 2023 1 PM ET




Urban centres have high concentrations of impervious areas which pose a challenge in managing large volumes of stormwater. Heavy rain events or back-to-back storms cause problems like flooding, property damage, and combined overflow sewer discharge. Green infrastructure, such as vegetated roofs, can help mitigate these problems because they restore the hydrologic cycle in urbanized areas. Vegetated roof systems designed for maximum stormwater management decrease the volume of stormwater within the urban core and reliably delay travel time of stormwater to the treatment plant. These retention and detention strategies help alleviate the burden of heavy stormwater on our cities’ infrastructure.

Proof of Attendance will be issued for Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Credit.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1.     Explain how biomimicry is used to re-engineer the conventional green roof system
2.     Identify types of projects that gain the most from friction-detention green roof technology
3.     Understand research and modeling methods used to assess performance and suitability
4.     Apply collaboration strategies to green roof design by involving Landscape Architects, Architects, Civil Engineers, Irrigation Consultants, and more.
