Low Impact Development and Green Infrastructure Stormwater Solutions
Event Description

Green Technology is conducting an educational webinar in a partnership with California Filtration Specialists. Please join the experts for an educational webinar addressing critical stormwater issues.

In today’s construction industry, along with nearly every other related sector of the economy, tremendous emphasis is being placed on environmental protection, compelling developers to adapt to new and potentially challenging regulations. Of the various environmental concerns any given project must accommodate, stormwater management ranks high on this list of challenges. Many states, counties, and municipalities have strict requirements for how any given site handles its stormwater runoff, requirements that become only more strict over time.

Two of the guiding principles of such regulations are the concepts of Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI); these related concepts address the means through which water can be treated, stored, re-used, or discharged from any given site. While developers are often forced to plan and install complicated, expensive stormwater retention and conveyance systems to try and meet regulatory requirements, such systems are not only unduly complex, but fail to achieve LID and GI standards. But what if you could introduce stormwater treatment and retention systems that not only DID achieve LID and GI standards, but cost far less than standard stormwater treatment systems?


Green Technology is a non-profit initiative designed to inform government efforts toward sustainability, providing a forum in which government officials can communicate with those in the private sector who are developing and distributing green technologies.

  • Agenda
    • In this session, you will gain an understanding of the core concepts of LID and Green Infrastructure, and how they can be properly achieved using decentralized treatment systems in order to help protect the environmental welfare of our communities. You will also learn how the unique hydrology of each site can be utilized to help prevent stormwater pollution using these systems, all at a fraction of the cost. CFS is proud to help you achieve environmental welfare while simultaneously saving money, and we hope that the information provided in these sessions will be helpful in achieving these goals.

      Learning Objectives:

      1. Understanding core concepts of LID and green infrastructure.
      2. Learn about Decentralized Treatment Systems.
      3. Understanding the hydrology of a project site.
      4. Using these systems to achieve LID, GI, and save you money!
