Green Infrastructure/Low Impact Development Workshop

February 2, 2017

8:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Texas A&M AgriLife Center at Dallas

Dallas, TX 75252


Green infrastructure for stormwater or low impact development (LID) refers to practices that manage stormwater in an urbanized setting in a way that minimizes impact to the environment, while increasing cost effectiveness and sustainability. Best management practices include bio-retention, green roofs, rainwater harvesting and permeable pavement. These help reduce the volume and pollutant load carried by surface storm water runoff into rivers and lakes.

This training will provide background information on LID and provide a tour of LID structures at the AgriLife Center, which include bio-retention/rain gardens, green roofs, rainwater harvesting, and permeable pavement. The cost of the training is $50 and will be held from 8:30 - 12:00 PM on February 2, 2017.
