Workshop Wednesday: Low Impact Development Performance and Policy Implications in Ohio

The Chagrin River Watershed Partners Inc., the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Erie Soil & Water Conservation District, the Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve and North Carolina State University have been conducting a three-year study on the performance of bioretention and permeable pavement in northern Ohio. Results from this research are being utilized to update post-construction best management practice (BMP) design specifications in the Rainwater and Land Development manual and to develop a system by which to credit the use of low-impact development practices and green infrastructure toward local stormwater management requirements. This full-day workshop will inform you of the research results and its implications for storm water management policy in Ohio. We will also visit some of the sites utilized in the study. Detailed agendas are attached.

This workshop is free to attend. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Participants will receive attendance certificates indicating 6 training hours. The workshop is being offered on either June 9, 2015, or June 10, 2015. The content is the same for both workshops, but site visits will vary. To maximize participation, please only register for one location.
