Learning Objectives
. Understanding current state of stormwater management issues.
. Principles of low-impact development and green infrastructure. 
. Introduction to Design Manual, Specifications, and 24 Compost-Based BMPs. 
. Concepts for truly sustainable BMPs. 
. Case studies in LEED green building and MS4 permit compliance applications.

Description 
Urban planners, engineers, and architects require standard specifications and design criteria for sustainable best management practices (BMPs) that can be implemented in the rapidly growing fields of green infrastructure, green building, low-impact development (LID), and sustainable site development. This webinar will introduce project planners, designers, regulators, and technical professionals to many of the concepts provided in the new design manual, The Sustainable Site. This book provides standard specifications and design criteria for more than 20 different organic, recycled, bio-based BMPs for construction and post-construction stormwater management scenarios. Building on concepts of biomimicry, natural capital rEDToration, and ecosystem service enhancement, attendees will learn how environmentally sustainable materials use natural processes to achieve high performance results, and how these practices can be easily designed into any plan. ”Designing with Nature” will emphasize how to engage and excel in green infrastructure and building projects from concept to design to implementation. It will provide information on how the BMPs outlined in The Sustainable Site fit into and contribute to LEED Green Building Credits (3.0), rEDTore predevelopment hydrology in LID projects, meet total maximum daily load (TMDL) guidelines, and reduce development site carbon footprints.
