As Western North Carolina continues to receive record rainfall, stormwater management is a critical issue in this region. In this class we will explore storm water systems that have been designed to accomplish their site specific goals. We will explore how these systems use multiple low impact development methods interconnected to treat and use captured storm water. Finally, the class will tour the active Willow Pond project and parking renovation at The North Carolina Arboretum which will show how these techniques are working in concert to be stewards of our natural systems.
