This is a technical workshop to train local engineers, designers, contractors, architects and developers on Green Infrastructure design as part of the City of Chattanooga’s Consent Decree program.
Join Greg Hoffman with The Center for Watershed Protection for the upcoming Chattanooga Stormwater Symposium. An outline of the day will be coming shortly. The goal of the symposium is to equip local engineers, landscape architects, developers and designers with the knowledge of a variety of techniques to meet the City of Chattanooga Stormwater requirements. Included in the day will be a tour of Anderson Avenue, a green infrastructure demonstration project by the City of Chattanooga.
Topics and activities included in the training:
- Review of the design requirements for various stormwater control measures.
- A field trip to a green infrastructure demonstration site.
- Discussion of solutions for challenging sites, including low-infiltration soils.
The Chattanooga Stormwater Symposium is sponsored by the City of Chattanooga & Grace Frank Group in partnership with green|spaces and American Society of Civil Engineers' Environmental Water Resources Institute.
Coffee, Lunch and PDHs will be included. Link to Registration
