Low Impact Development - 5 PDH

This course will introduce you to some of the basic concepts of Low Impact Development (LID) …. a stormwater management strategy concerned with maintaining or restoring the natural hydrologic functions of a site to achieve natural resource protection objectives and fulfill environmental regulatory requirements. You will learn about stormwater management using the hydrologic cycle approach, LID design goals and objectives, a comparison of LID to conventional stormwater management practices, and how distributed micro-scale systems are used in LID. This course will give engineers and others an introduction to the concepts underlying the Low Impact Development (LID) approach to stormwater management. It will give you an understanding of the basic principles of LID that will allow you to apply LID strategies when addressing regulatory and environmental requirements associated with land development projects.

good course, concepts well presented along with optional improvements. always starting at the source of the potential impact is fundamental.

Very clear concise and provides good information on a topic that is broad in nature. Recommend it.

Good course! Somewhat simple, and not a lot of design detail, but good for people looking for a general overview of Low Impact Development.
