Norton Standards & Guidelines

From the Desk of Norton Engineering Inc.:

National Guidelines & Standards:

Barbara chaired this important standard published by CSA. This Guideline covers measures to reduce the risks of basement flooding, and to mitigate the adverse effects on property, public safety, and public health in case of a flood event. It covers existing, new, rebuilt, and renovated houses in rural and urban settings.

This is the first national sewer guideline published in Canada. Barbara prepared the draft, and worked with a national stakeholder committee to revise and finalize this seed document, which has since developed into a National Standard of Canada (BNQ, 2023)

This is the second national sewer guideline published in Canada. It was conceived of, drafted and brought to fruition at the federal level. Barbara chaired the national  stakeholder committee that worked together to finalize the document, which was published in 2021. This document is being developed into a National Standard of Canada from 2023 -2025 (BNQ).

Barbara co-authored this guide is intended to provide a basis for the development of guidance on foundation drainage

systems, sump pump systems, backwater protection for foundation drainage systems, and private-side

sanitary sewer connections. This document covers components found in Part 9 of the National Building Code of Canada.
