EPA Offers Webcast on Low-Impact Development Dec. 9th 1-3 pm
Join the EPA's Watershed Academy for the webcast "Designing LID to Work: Lessons Learned from North Carolina." North Carolina is a geographically diverse state spanning mountain, piedmont and coastal regions, making its low impact development (LID) implementation progress a model for many states across the country. North Carolina State University is a national leader in the study of LID and has advanced LID research and implementation, including the development of the stateâ€™s LID guidance, the "North Carolina LID Guidebook." The NC State Cooperative Extensionâ€™s LID certification program also has the potential to be replicated nationally. This webcast will feature a discussion of barriers to LID implementation and the progress that is being made to address them from a "boots on the ground" perspective of the NC State Cooperative Extension, as well as a landscape architect who is making LID a reality.
