Résumé de conférence
The City of Toronto has experienced more frequent extreme storms, which have resulted in wide spread surface and basement flooding. These storms have far exceeded the existing storm drainage design capacity. System improvement works in the past have focused almost exclusively on the sanitary sewer system, to reduce the risk of basement flooding, however they have been insufficient to guard against larger, more intense rainfall events.
An adaptive management strategy has been developed to help reduce the risk of flooding during extreme storm events. The strategy uses an integrated systems approach which includes : lot level controls; storm and sanitary sewer improvements; and overland flow control.
