Stormwater Management

Tuesday May 7

Stormwater is the water from rainstorms and melting snow that flows into storm drains in the road and is carried through an underground pipe system to our rivers. Stormwater from snowmelt and rain enters the Bow and Elbow rivers without going through a treatment plant so there is a requirement to ensure the water draining into the rivers is clean.

May’s S&E speaker, Kyle White, is the program strategist supporting the implementation of Calgary’s recently approved Stormwater Strategy. Kyle will describe how the city’s stormwater management system reduces the impact of flooding, pollution and stream erosion through practices that improve the quality and decrease the volume of stormwater entering our rivers.


Kyle White, MSc is a program strategist with close to 20 years’ experience in the development and delivery of environmental programs across the municipal, provincial and non-profit sector. Kyle started his career developing waste strategies with the Town of Banff and has been with the City of Calgary for 16 years, during which time he has worked on projects ranging from water efficiency and flood education to construction best practices. Kyle holds a Master’s degree in leadership and sustainability from Blekinge Technical Institute in Karlskrona Sweden, and is currently the program strategist supporting the implementation of the City’s recently approved Stormwater Strategy.
