Learning Outcomes
Learners will be able to identify and explain the benefits of infiltrating stormwater, including reduced stormwater volume and peak flow and improved stormwater quality.

Learners will be able to discuss scientific elements of soil and water, including types of soils, the impact of water on soil and how water moves through soil.

Learners will be able to identify and describe innovative subsurface infiltration storage systems and how they manage high volumes of water runoff and reduce pollutant loads.

Learners will be able to identify and describe innovative pretreatment solution options that promote sustainability for stormwater infiltration, including mechanical screening and filters, increased permeable surfaces, and high performance modular biofiltration systems.
