Best management practices include bio-retention, green roofs, rainwater harvesting and permeable pavement. These help reduce the volume and pollutant load carried by surface storm water runoff into rivers and lakes. This training will provide background information on LID and provide a tour of LID structures at the AgriLife Center, which include bio-retention/rain gardens, green roofs, rainwater harvesting, and permeable pavement.
