How Low Impact Sustainable Development Strategies Can Mitigate High Intensity Rainfall Events

Tuesday, February 13
9:10 AM - 10:10 AM

PDH: 1

Location: 102C

Level of Presentation: Intermediate

This course will show how Low Impact Sustainable Development stormwater system can be designed mitigate some of all of the runoff from short, duration, but high intensity rainfall events as well as rainfall events where more than 1" falls within a 24 hour period. It will show how to model these system using HydroCAD software to clearly demonstrate the reductions of runoff volume which can be achieved. By understanding the design and modeling approaches, you will be able to implement these strategies which reduce surface discharge volumes which would then result in less urbanized flooding.
