    3. 3. Learning Objectives1. Participants will be able to identify several Sustainable Site Strategies: Bioswales Subsurface Detention Hardscape “Diet” Bioretention Basins Geothermal Heating and Cooling System SS|D
    4. 4. Learning Objectives2. Participants will learn which LEED credits can be achieved through Sustainable Site Strategies under the newly adopted 2009 LEED V3 in comparison to the former LEED V2.2. SS|D
    5. 5. Sustainable Site StrategiesA. Minimize impact on watershed 1) Preserve natural drainage features, minimize roofs and paving 2) Use pervious surfaces and “green roofs” 3) Disperse runoff from impervious surfaces on to adjacent pervious surfaces 4) Drain impervious surfaces to engineered Best Management Practices (BMPs)B. Conserve or reuse water SS|DC. Conserve energy
    6. 6. Stormwater QuantityWhat’s the problem?
