Date & Time

October 27-28, 2020
8:30am - 12:00pm EDT (Log in time: 7:45am - 8:00am)



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 online 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.

Featured Topics

  • Beyond Peak Flow Attenuation…Importance of Runoff Volume Reduction
  • Construction Concerns and Proper Oversight
  • Design of Bioretention Basins and Swales
  • Design of Constructed Wetlands
  • Design of Gravel Wetland Systems
  • Design of Infiltration Basins
  • Engineering and Geotechnical Data Collection Needs
  • Maintenance of Advanced Stormwater Management Systems

Learner Objectives

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.
