Low Impact Development is a way to treat stormwater on site through natural infiltration (using bioswales, greenroofs, cisterns, bioretention facilities, and porous pavement).  At the workshop, you will learn about these technologies as well as the new EPA regulations for treating stormwater and also how trees can be used as an affordable solution.  This will be very informative to civil engineers, developers, landscape architects, planners, architects, municipal stormwater engineers, and others.
