Webinar:  Old Dog, New Tricks: Using the Drainage Act to get Low Impact Development (LID) into the Ground Online This webinar will focus on an innovative, current application of the Drainage Act in a pre-developed urban area as it pertains to the inclusion of low impact drainage features within the Credit River Watershed. From project initiation to preliminary reporting and dispute resolution mechanisms, the Drainage Act offers a transparent framework that can be used to successfully get projects into the ground. Through the development of Assessment and Maintenance Schedules, the Drainage Act ensures that the cost of constructing and operating drainage works is funded by public and private users in perpetuity. Assessment and Maintenance schedules are transparent in their allocation of costs and rigorous in the methodology of their development, thereby minimizing opportunities for disagreement. Registration is required.
