Welcome to the website for the Toronto Section of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering. On this site you will find all of the information you need relating to Section Events, Contacts, History, and other valuable information.
The Excellence in Innovation Award encourages breakthrough and original design through the collaboration of practising civil engineers for the greater benefit of Canadian society. This year, CSCE Toronto is proud to present the award to York Region, for their Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning for Improved Wastewater System Response Forecasting project.
Through the use of 350 monitoring stations, the region’s wastewater system is calibrated for changing inflow and infiltration rates in real-time. Not only does this new approach calibrate the system using live and measured data, but it also saves weeks of analysis time in the process. This innovation was made possible through the joint efforts of the Inflow and Infiltration Reduction team with the Data Analytics and Visualization team of York Region, led by the unwavering dedication of Project Manager Ranin Nseir, P.Eng.
Future plans for this system involve combining the machine learning results with historical data to improve the wastewater system monitoring and assist the Region’s asset planning team. Above all, this prototype can now inspire similar developments within other regions within Ontario and nationwide.
This event officially kicks off CSCE Toronto Section’s 2019-2020 fall and winter event lineups! Our section is preparing a very exciting line-up of events for engineers at every point in their careers, from recent graduates to seasoned professionals. With plenty of opportunities to network and gain valuable professional development hours along the way, there is no better way to spend those few extra hours than becoming an active member of this tight-knit community of dedicated professionals.
Huge congratulations and round of applause goes to York Region for their new and innovative solution and of course, to CSCE National for fostering Civil Engineering innovation, technological progress, and above all else, team work!
