About the Workshop Series
Current trends in research and application suggest that Low Impact Development (LID) can play an important role to better manage stormwater and protect our receiving waters. In response to this growing awareness, as well as new regulatory requirements in western Washington and guidance in eastern, WA, local jurisdictions are increasingly applying LID where feasible.

The Washington State University LID Technical Workshop Series provides the latest design guidelines, science, construction details, and practical experience necessary to properly design, build and maintain LID practices. All classes will be conducted at the Washington Stormwater Center on the WSU-Puyallup campus. Hands-on learning opportunities will augment the classwork. Instructors of the four, two-day workshops are regional experts.

These workshops are an integral part of the Statewide Washington LID Training Program now underway.

Who Should Attend
Engineers, planners, landscape architects, local jurisdiction staff, and allied disciplines that plan, design, review, build and maintain LID projects.

"Fabulous training opportunity for folks who have an engineering, architectural, landscape architectural or planning background. The technical information is valuable, as well as the fact that much of the research and examples are here in the northwest with our weather patterns and soils."

"Very informative and in depth. One of the best workshops I've ever attended."

"Washington is really lucky to have this program!"
