Directions, Parking Information & Map
GPS systems may not recognize campus addresses. Even if they take you to the correct building, they will not take you to the assigned parking lot. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use the directions we provide.
Green infrastructure stormwater management is widely promoted by state and federal agencies as the proper way to control, treat and reduce stormwater runoff and its associated problems. However, there are challenges to correctly designing, constructing and maintaining these "advanced stormwater management systems." These challenges often lead to failures or conditions that compromise the functionality of such BMPs, fostering a reluctance to adopt green infrastructure stormwater management techniques for either new development or redevelopment projects.
This course focuses on the proper design, construction and maintenance of various green infrastructure stormwater BMPs, offering a number of actual constructed systems to support their feasibility and applicability in different development settings.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will be able to discern proper design, construction and maintenance of various green infrastructures, including infiltration basins, bioretention basins and swales, constructed wetlands, and gravel wetland systems. They will also demonstrate knowledge of techniques to reduce runoff volume, and maintain advanced stormwater management systems.
