Course Description

This course has been developed to provide participants with the technical training required to design Low Impact Development (LID) infiltration practices and guides them through the steps of the design process. Comprised of five modules this course discusses the science of infiltration, infiltration best practices, conducting a site evaluation and field reconnaissance, creating a detailed design, and the operation and maintenance of LID infiltration practices.


Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for developers, consultants, municipalities, landowners or anyone with a general understanding of LID, looking to enhance their knowledge and learn how to design LID infiltration based practices and the process required.


Learning Objectives:

1.  Identify common concerns with LID infiltration practices in cold climates and understand how they impact the performance of LID techniques
2.  Describe the components and various forms of infiltration based techniques
3.  Complete a comprehensive site evaluation and conduct field reconnaissance
4.  Select suitable LID infiltration practices to satisfy targets and criteria and determine appropriate placement within a project site
5.  Develop detailed design drawings to ensure infiltration practices are constructed properly
6.  Discuss the financial considerations for the operation and maintenance of LID practices
