Thunder Bay Stormwater Management Master Plan

EOR is working with the City of Thunder Bay in the developing the Thunder Bay Stormwater Master Plan (SMP) which will serve to protect water quality and the health of the water resources that shape and define Thunder Bay.  The Plan will assess the impact of future development and climate change on both infrastructure and the environment, as well as recommend strategies, policies, and standards to mitigate development impacts.

EOR Technical Workshop on the Rural Stormwater Management Model

In July, EOR presented to 80 people about their recent work in developing the Rural Stormwater Management Model (RSWMM) for Lake Huron’s southeast shoreline, in a largely rural area stretching from Sarnia to Tobermory in Ontario, Canada. The workshop was hosted by Healthy Lake Huron: Clean Water, Clean Beaches, a partnership of federal and provincial ministries, public health, local conservation agencies, and other partners.

Stormwater Harvesting & Reuse Research

EOR recently completed the study 'Stormwater Harvesting: Accounting of Benefits and Feasibility'. The goal of this study was to develop a model and calculator that would quantify phosphorus reduction benefits of phosphorus sedimentation in the stormwater storage basin and the application of stormwater to irrigate lawns.
