Intended Audience

For StormwaterONE students who have completed the GI199: Low Impact Development (LID) for Stormwater Management training course.

Curriculum: Introduction to Low Impact Development (LID)

Low Impact Development (LID) relates directly to construction and GREEN stormwater infrastructure and focuses on maintaining and restoring natural hydrology while fulfilling environmental regulations.

LID is a versatile approach that can be applied to new development, urban retrofits, and revitalization projects. This design approach incorporates strategic planning with stormwater management techniques to achieve environmental protection goals while still allowing for development or infrastructure rehabilitation to occur.

The LID BMPs that will be covered in this course include Bioretention and Rain Gardens, Rain Barrels, Residential runoff treatment, Rooftop runoff, Roof rain harvesting practices, Green Roofs, Grass Swales, and Permeable Paving.

At the completion of this course, the student will be able to identify LID practices for stormwater management and water quality protection as well as the preservation of wetlands and streams. The course will cover LID methods to plan, install, monitor, and maintain LID BMPs and control runoff at the source.

Highly Recommend for the Advanced or a Beginner

..the instructor was great. Easy to follow along. I had no experience in this field and was very nervous. Got to work at my own pace through the online courses which gave me confidence once I got to the virtual instruction. I recommend to everyone regardless if you are advanced or a beginner in the field.
