Webinar: Soak up the Rain
Learn to use the EPA's Stormwater Calculator
Monday, April 20, 2020 · Noon - 1 PM
EPA’s National Stormwater Calculator (SWC) is a software application that estimates the annual amount of rainwater and frequency of runoff from a specific site. Estimates are based on local soil conditions, land cover, and historic rainfall records. Users supply information about the site’s land cover and then select the low impact development (LID) controls they would like to use. The LID controls include seven green infrastructure practices. The SWC is designed to be used by anyone interested in reducing runoff from a property, including site developers, landscape architects, urban planners, and homeowners. This webinar will use the SWC web application and consider an area located at UMBC.
