This workshop will focus on design with a peek into the maintenance of stormwater control measures (SCM) used to comply with new developmental goals.

This training event was produced through the Climate Change Adaptation Platform, with support from
Natural Resources Canada.

Please Note:  STEP is exploring all options to deliver this training as a virtual course in the event we are not able to return to normal business operations by October 2020. 

Course Description:

Green infrastructure (GI) and low impact development (LID) are predicated on meeting “new” design metrics, such as annual runoff matching, stream stability, and carbon sequestration. Many (generally smaller-scale) practices are used to comply with design metrics, including bioretention, permeable pavement, swales, bio-swales, regenerative stormwater conveyance, rainwater harvesting, and green roofs. Each of these practices has unique design features, some of which are intended to ensure longer-term operation.  Maintenance needs must be well understood before practices are selected.

This workshop will focus on design with a peek into the maintenance of stormwater control measures (SCM) used to comply with new developmental goals.

Instructor:

William Hunt, Professor and Extension Specialist, Biological and Agricultural Engineering, North Carolina State University

Learning Objectives:

Attendees of this class will be able to:

  1. Designers will understand different means of evaluating LID, SCM design successes. These include traditional (hydrology and water quality) and non-traditional (Carbon, Property Value) metrics.
  2. Core design standards for the following practices (bioretention, permeable pavement, swales, regenerative stormwater conveyance, rainwater harvesting, and green roofs) will be explained as underpinned by relevant research.
  3. Maintenance (and maintenance-based design) will be addressed for the two most prevalent LID stormwater control measures, bioretention and permeable pavements.

Additional Information:

This course is eligible for six (6) continuing education hours for CISEC and other industry associations.

Lunch and light refreshments will be provided.
