Stormwater Quality Improvement Device Evaluation Protocol (SQIDEP) is a uniform set of criteria to which stormwater treatment devices can be field-tested, evaluated, and reported. In this webinar, guest speaker Dr Darren Drapper will discuss the importance of SQIDEP in driving best practice and standardisation in the stormwater industry. He will also walk us through the application process and explain what it takes to attain SQIDEP certification.
We will also be joined by SPEL’s senior staff, Henry Ha and André Magar who will talk about our own experience in undertaking SQIDEP verification for our Hydrochannel and SPELBasin solutions.
