Learn about rainwater management strategies in this latest webinar episode of the Lunch & LEED series.

This online session (GBCI: 0920003503) will explore the process to achieve the Rainwater Management credit, utilizing green infrastructure — such as green roofs, bioswales and cisterns — and low-impact development. The course features case studies and interviews with specialists from the city of Portland.

Continuing education credits — 1.0 CE LEED-Specific hours for BD+C, O+M, Green Associate, and 1 AIA LU.

The intended audience includes design professionals who want to manage stormwater runoff; protect and restore watersheds; and create more sustainable building sites. Course participants will learn how to achieve the Rainwater Management credit for LEED v4 BD+C and O+M rating systems.

In addition, participants will learn how green infrastructure can bring nature into an urban area, which can improve both mental and physical health, increase property value and enhance wildlife habitat.
