Learning Outcomes
Learners will be able to discuss stormwater behavior and consequences before regulatory requirements, current stormwater requirements, and the benefits of infiltrating stormwater, including reduced stormwater volume and peak flow and improved stormwater quality.

Learners will be able to explain the importance of understanding types of soils, soil characteristics, the impact of water on soils, and how water moves through soil.

Learners will be able to identify how infiltration is measured, how infiltration surfaces are created and used, and strategies to maximize infiltration.

Learners will be able to describe how infiltration can be improved using low impact development techniques, including bio-retention rain gardens, pervious pavement, vegetated filter strips, stormwater retention and reuse, and wetlands.
