The storm water map, developed by the Atlantic Stormwater Initiative shows locations of Low Impact Development projects across Atlantic Canada.
This calculator, developed by CNT is a tool for comparing the performance, costs and benefits of Green Infrastructure or Low Impact Development for storm water management. The tool was developed based on hydrology of the Great Lakes region; results could be different for other regions.
The Living Shorelines Academy, funded by the U.S. EPA, and created by Restore America’s Estuaries and the North Carolina Coastal Federation, has developed tools to elevate the understanding, importance and practice of using living shorelines. The website contains training modules, database of reports, map of highlighted living shorelines projects, directory of professionals and more.
The document provides information on established practices, guidelines and standards for naturalized approaches to stormwater management. It uses a multidisciplinary approach in areas such as civil engineering, expertise in environmental and plant ecology, landscape architecture and urban planning.
Soak it Up! Toolkit written by Green Communities Canada presents 16 actions municipalities can take to reduce run off and run off pollution. The toolkit provides examples of what other communities are doing as well as insights from practitioners on what works and what doesn’t. The actions mentioned in the toolkit range from community engagement and capacity building to using green infrastructure on public property. The toolkit also involves a storm water scorecard to analyse communities’ existing policies, plans and programs around green infrastructure and storm water management.
The Climate Adaptation Toolkit for Marine and Coastal Protected Areas contains tools that help protect area managers evaluate vulnerability of sites to climate change, identify adaptation strategies and learn through case studies, reports and other resources. The creation of this toolkit has been guided by marine and coastal protected area managers from Canada, United States and Mexico, built within Climate Adaptation Knowledge Exchange (CAKE).
This report was prepared by the TD Bank Group (TD) and the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). The reports talks about the properties conserved by NCC under the TD Forests program to calculate natural value capital of forests.
The Low Impact Development (LID) Guidance Documents prepared by the Credit Valley Conservation provide guidance on how to retrofit existing properties to incorporate LID storm water management technologies. Some of the LID guides are included for road retrofits, residential retrofits, public land retrofits, water sustainability planning, etc.
