Low Impact Development Stormwater Management Practices: Design and Installation Demonstrations

Date

October 30, 2008

Location

North Charleston, SC

Narrative

This one-day event is designed to provide developers, engineers, architects, contractors, and planners with an opportunity to learn about low impact development (LID) strategies for managing stormwater - specifically bioretention swales and pervious surfaces. The design and engineering aspects will be addressed in a short classroom seminar, followed by a site visit to the Oak Terrace Preserve community where these practices are being implemented. This event will feature Elias Deeb, from The Noisette Company, and Mike Horton, from Davis & Floyd. As the project coordinators for the Oak Terrace Preserve (OTP) site, they will address lessons learned during the OTP development process, as well as technical aspects of LID implementation. This event is free of charge and lunch will be provided before the site visit. Seminar will begin at the Noisette Company conference room at 1360 Truxtun Avenue, Suite 200 in North Charleston. Transportation between the seminar and the site visit will be provided. For this event CEU and PDH credits are available.
