Low Impact Development Workshops

Clear Creek Solutions low-impact development (LID) workshops explore the ins and outs of how to model LID facilities and practices.

Our LID training workshops can be customized to address your specific compliance standards and hydrology modeling software of choice.

In general, our LID workshops cover the following topics:

LID facilities:

  • Green roof
  • Bioswale
  • Bioretention (rain garden)
  • Permeable pavement
  • Impervious area disconnection

Procedures and methods to meet specified minimum requirements, such as:

  • LID performance standards based on matching flow durations
  • Water quality treatment reporting based on pollution-generating surfaces
  • Stream protection flow control standard
  • Wetland protection standard based on runoff volume changes

Connect with us for more information about our LID training workshops.
