Low Impact Development (LID) Trainings for the Building Industry
Low Impact Development (LID), or
Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI), requirements for new
construction and redevelopment are coming soon in many cities and
counties across the state.
These upcoming LID requirements in Ecology’s Municipal Stormwater
Permits must be incorporated into local codes and ordinances over
the next few years. This will directly impact Washington's building industry and a
variety of technical training to a variety of building industry
audiences will be needed.
With this in mind, Ecology is working with the Washington Home
Builders Foundation to begin to provide what we are calling "LID
101" information and presentations to building industry
professionals around the state. The first series of these trainings
occurred in May-June 2013. Ecology recognizes that not all building professionals
reached with this initial effort.
However, Ecology hopes to
provide more FREE "LID 101" trainings as well as more audience
LID trainings soon. If you are part of the building
industry profession and would like more information regarding LID
please contact Jocelyn
Jones at 360-407-7529.
