Presto Geosystems presents the webinar – Incorporating LID and GI Practices for Enhanced Stormwater Management – on July 30, 2024 at 11 a.m. CDT. The presenter is Sam Justice, P.E., you can earn a 1.0 PDH credit, and you can register here.

As environmental regulations become more stringent, it is increasingly important to incorporate Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI) management into project sites. To address this need, innovative methods have been developed that reduce the amount of hard surfaces, such as parking lots, walkways, and emergency access lanes, while protecting areas of environmental significance.

One of these methods is porous pavements, which are both easy to implement and cost-effective. By reducing impervious surfaces on-site, they help restore the natural water cycle and minimize the need for above-ground detention ponds and conveyance infrastructure. Similarly, low-maintenance solutions for stormwater diversion channels, roadside swales, and drainage ditches protect against erosion and overflow concerns.

Another effective solution is living green walls, which increase on-site vegetation and promote water filtration from higher elevations. These walls also offer the added benefit of providing access to more valuable land.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about how LID and GI practices, including porous pavements and living green walls, can help builders and engineers work with regulators to meet environmental requirements while creating sustainable and resilient project sites.

Learning Objectives:

Develop a comprehensive understanding of Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI) and their importance in promoting sustainable and resilient project sites for both residential and commercial purposes.

Gain an understanding of the regulations governing these practices and how they have been met with traditional construction methods.

Learn about porous pavement options and their benefits and limitations related to infiltration, runoff reduction, traffic, and performance.

Understand how to manage urban stormwater through the design of vegetated channels that replace hard surface systems and mitigate flooding potential.
