Watearth Engineering Rain Gardens and Bioretention


Published on

Bioretention facilities or rain gardens are one of the most widely used Low Impact Development (LID) tools nationwide. Monitoring and research studies have proven bioretention to be effective for mitigating hydrologic impacts (peak flows and volumes) and removing stormwater pollutants. Bioretention is an economical method of incorporating multi-functional stromwater management into private and public projects. It's also a popular method of obtaining LEED points for Green Building certification. Participants in this webinar will understand the benefits of bioretention and rain gardens and receive insight into sizing bioretention facilities. This seminar covers standardized soil mixes and design details and modifications for regional conditions. Publicly available LID manuals with outstanding design details and criteria are recommended. Vegetation, coordination with landscape architects, and general maintenance requirements are included. This webinar is especially beneficial for Consulting Engineers, Public Agency Engineers and reviewers, USACE Engineers and Personnel, Architects, Landscape Architects, Environmental Scientists, Sustainability Coordinators and EITs.
