The session is being created with support from the Western Canada Water Environment Association and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Stormwater Institute. The WEF Stormwater Institute is a center for excellence and innovation focused on developing best-in-class solutions to stormwater runoff and wet weather issues. The institute is identifying cross-cutting issues, convening experts to tackle those issues, providing insights and leadership to policymakers, and helping chart a new course toward a healthier and more sustainable stormwater system.

The workshop will include information from owners, regulators and practitioners across sectors which are most impacted by stormwater management and will present aspects of stormwater to be relevant to stormwater drainage and flood protection.
