A Low Impact Development FastTrack Certification will be held at Haywood Community College on Wednesday, September 15 through Friday, September 17. The faculty of NCSU’s Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering will instruct the class.

Low Impact Development (LID) is typically defined as a stormwater management design framework aimed at minimizing the negative impacts of stormwater runoff. LID includes: mimicking pre-development hydrology, tree conservation, maximizing open space, maintenance, structural practices, and education.

The Introduction to LID course addresses LID in the contexts of design, planning, implementation, and maintenance. The course will give an overview of LID from a holistic perspective. The Integrating LID, LEED and Policy course addresses LID in the context of policy and other challenges one may encounter when preparing for LID projects. These courses are designed for planners, engineers, landscape architects, realtors, surveyors, local governments, and anyone interested in environmentally friendly, cost-efficient developments.
