Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Drafts for Review
Standard W211 (Management Standard for Stormwater Systems)
‘This Standard outlines minimum requirements and recommendations for the management of a Stormwater System established by an Operating Authority. It provides a standardized guidance process to manage a Stormwater System to meet regulatory requirements, reflect sound policy decision-making, and demonstrate a high standard of care to minimize legal, environmental, social and economic risks especially given a changing climate and hydrologic conditions. It also provides a documentation protocol to ensure all changes and decisions made in policy and procedures are well documented and identifies steps for Operating Authorities to internally audit their management system. (CSA, 2021)’
