APLDCT is proud to present this half day workshop on Stormwater and Low Impact Development (LID) issues with Steve Trinkaus of Trinkaus Engineering

Steven Trinkaus

Steve Trinkaus

Low Impact Development or LID as it is commonly called, is a relatively new development strategy, which is quickly becoming a critical part of any type of land development project in order to reduce the impacts of storm water runoff, and in particular improve the water quality from completed projects. Initally developed in the Chesapeake Bay area to reduce the adverse impacts of development and storm water on the sensitive bay area and the many environmental resources found there, the general goal of LID is to mimic pre-development hydrologic conditions through the application of five basic concepts.

Mr. Trinkaus’ presentation will cover LID as it pertains to the following:

  • Overview of stormwater issues and LID
  • Importance of soils
  • Discussion of native soil properties, conditions and position on landscape
  • Amending disturbed soils to increase infiltrative capacity
  • Common LID techniques for residential scale
  • Bioretention/Rain gardens
  • Filter Strips
  • Impervious area disconnection
  • Overview of designing and sizing common LID techniques
  • Case Studies (real world applications: The Good, Bad and the Ugly)

**This workshop has been approved for 4 NOFA AOLCP CEU Credits**
