This is a presentation given at the 2011 Stormwater BMP Installation and Maintenance Workshop, sponsored by the Johnson County, Kansas Stormwater Management Program, and held at Johnson County Community College in December.
Two files have been posted. The first presentation illustrates how urbanization changes our landscape and the way water moves through it, the consequences of those changes, and how green infrastructure can help restore ecological function to the built environment.
The second presentation (this one) is an introduction to rain garden and bioretention construction for commercial applications (rather than residential yards).
