What you can learn.

  • Apply watershed approach to design process
  • Select, size, and calculate benefits of low impact development strategies
  • Design a green infrastructure system that achieves multiple benefits, including stormwater regulations

About this course:

Sustainable site planning requires understanding and calculating storm events and designing landscapes to capture, hold, and infiltrate stormwater through landscape designs that focus on several methods, from on-site retention and cisterns to green infrastructure, such as swales. This course showcases unique designs and describes the methods and calculations used to design stormwater BMPs for a site to appropriately accommodate seasonal stormwater within the Southern California region. This course covers the California and City of Los Angeles regulatory requirements for stormwater and provides an overview of stormwater plan design hydrologic/hydraulic concepts, environmental site design, and non-proprietary stormwater BMPs, including critical design elements and typical stormwater plan compliance strategies.
