Convergent President, Robert Adair, to speak at Memphis-Shelby County LID Workshop

Posted on Wed, Mar 05, 2014

Convergent President, Robert Adair will be a guest speaker at the Memphis-Shelby County LID workshop

KEYNOTE: A LID Design Competition: The Houston Experience 

During the LID Workshop you will learn about Low Impact Development technologies as well as the new EPA regulations for treating stormwater and also how trees can be used as an affordable solution.  This will be very informative to civil engineers, developers, landscape architects, planners, architects, municipal stormwater engineers, and others.

Convergent President, Robert Adair, will be participating in two technical sessions at IECA 2014 Environmental Connection.

Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 8:00 a.m.
Expert Forum: Barriers to Implementation of LID: Issues and Solutions
While Low Impact Development is gaining acceptance in many areas, there is still a lot of resistance to it? What are the issues which cause this resistance? Are they technical or policy based? How can policy issues be resolved to implement LID? How do you address technical issues, like tight soils, high groundwater, excessively well drained soils? This panel brings national LID experts together to answer these and other questions.

Issues of Innovation in Stormwater and Low Impact Design 
Stormwater issues are on the rise across the country, yet many solutions proposed today are not inherently different than those used in the past. Rather than fighting tomorrow's battle with yesterday's technology, it is time for innovation to be injected into the sector through new technical and public outreach approaches, technologies, financing and programmatic paradigms. This half-day session sponsored by the Water Environment Federation's Stormwater Program will present non-standard ways to promote non-standard stormwater practices and approaches, such as Low Impact Development and Green Infrastructure, through a variety of avenues including grass roots engagement, alternative funding/financing frameworks, and on-the-ground techniques and emerging technologies that may help to change the landscape in stormwater in the future. This session will challenge the standard way we manage stormwater runoff on a variety of fronts
