On-Site Training - Low Impact


Low Impact Development (LID) Applications for Water Resource Management (pdf
Instructors - Larry Coffman and Neil Weinstein, P.E., R.L.A., AICP, M.ASCE
Low Impact Development (LID) is an innovative approach to stormwater management that is being implemented by federal agencies, state and local governments for aquatic resource protection and regulatory compliance. LID is a site level stormwater management design approach with an objective of maintaining the hydrologic cycle or meeting targeted watershed objectives. This is accomplished by a combination of planning and design strategies that use conservation approaches and techniques to reduce site development impacts in combination with Integrated Management Practices (IMPs). IMPs are small scale stormwater management devices that are distributed throughout the site, on buildings, and throughout the infrastructure to meet the control objectives. This seminar will focus on the engineering and technical issues associated with the planning, engineering, and construction of LID. It will give the practicing engineer a foundation to begin to design LID projects and incorporate LID into local stormwater management programs
