LID Research Roundtable, April 16, 2013
Summary: Nearly 20 scientists, engineers, and regulators met at the Discovery Center at the Hobcaw Barony to discuss current, local research as it pertains to low impact development practices for managing stormwater runoff in the coastal areas of South Carolina. Research topics discussed included hydrologic impacts of urbanization, runoff predictions for coastal first-order watersheds, modified coastal streams, and pond management. The group discussed specific physical limitations (e.g. high water tables and poorly drained soils) as well as pollutants of concern (nitrogen, phosphorus, sediment, and bacteria) as they related to LID implementation and modification.
Presentations and Resources
- Assessing Hydrologic Impacts of Urbanization
- Runoff Predictions, Bioretention, and Online Community Resource Inventory
- Modified Coastal Streams and Ditches
- Water Volume and Bacteria Loads
Workshop #1, January 16, 2013
Summary: Over 50 engineers, planners, landscape architects, developers, and researchers from throughout the SC coastal zone joined the project team and advisory committee for this kick-off workshop. The workshop included an introduction of the project and project team, who addressed how stakeholder input has and will continue to inform this effort. The workshop included a brief overview of state stormwater regulations, which was followed by concurrent breakout sessions with technical and planning audiences. The project team led discussions with the attendees to further inform the content of the manual, including a discussion on case studies.
