Current water, sanitary and storm design standard approaches and parameters based on land zoning have been identified as leading to conservative design assumptions and can result in overbuilt infrastructure. The new Edmonton zoning bylaw (introducing fewer and broader zones) will exacerbate the current issue as it will generally allow more variety in built form in each zone. A modernized approach to providing design standards (not only tied to zoning) is required to prudently design infrastructure moving forward.
This workshop will build a broader awareness on the topic of EPCOR’s design standards modernization initiative, and have an open discussion on how a more customized approach will impact the development process. Providing more flexibility to design standards will require technical and process changes, with likely a new pre-design touch-point being required at the beginning of the planning process.
Design standards related to water consumption and sanitary generation, fire flows and storm design will be discussed.
EPCOR will be talking about each of the three topics (consumption/generation, fire flows, storm) followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion after each topic.
