2023 Low Impact Development Conference Oct. 19-20

Florida communities must reduce the amount of polluted stormwater entering coastal estuaries, especially the Indian River Lagoon. Low Impact Development (LID) and Green Infrastructure (GI) represent the most progressive trends in stormwater management to protect water quality and reduce flooding.

MRC’s Low Impact Development Conferences cover the full range of LID/GI tools, from comprehensive land-use planning and manual creation to engineered design and construction of green roofs, infiltration devices, cisterns, and bioretention areas. Experts share case studies that demonstrate cost-effective means to set and meet pollution load reductions, recharge groundwater aquifers, and prevent flooding.
