Webinar: Stormwater and LID Field Monitoring Lessons Learned

September 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Online Webinar
$25 - $49
Victoria Kring

In this webinar, we will discuss some of the more common lessons learned that may apply to your monitoring program.  This will include the types of site observations to document and what they mean for performance and function, the importance and challenges associated with inflow monitoring, the need for clear procedures and protocols, and more.

Twentieth-century best practices in stormwater management led to the burying and hiding of many water courses and natural drainage channels. In the 21st century we instead try to supplement stormwater sewers and enhance landscape hydrology with LID and green infrastructure (GI) practices. The various components of common vegetated LID structures will be presented with a commentary on the relationship and differences between each.

To facilitate interdisciplinary working, a review of the Rational method will be presented, along with advice on how the landscaped and engineered components of LID work together to control flow and to promote natural water balance. This webinar will not focus on planting schemes; plant selection resources will be recommended and linked.
