Webcast: Re-Visioning Landscapes with LID: The Houston Experience

Join us for a webcast on Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 1:00 pm EDT on "Re-Visioning Landscapes with LID: The Houston Experience." Register at: www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts

Take a break from the summer heat to join us for the "Re-Visioning Landscapes with LID: The Houston Experience" webcast. During the past winter, the Houston Land/Water Sustainability Forum sponsored a national Low Impact Development (LID) Design Competition. The competition was created to educate design professionals, decision makers and the public on the economic, environmental and quality-of-life positive impacts of LID.

The design teams, most of whom had no previous experience with LID, created designs for three real developments being planned around greater Houston's green roadway, urban redevelopment, and a suburban residential design. This webcast will feature participants from all portions of the competition - competition organizers, competition winners, and design judges. Speakers include Robert C. Adair, President, Construction EcoServices, Justin Ring, PE, Senior Project Manager, Edminster, Hinshaw, Russ & Associates, Christopher Browne, LEED AP, Manager, Land Planning and Development Services, Edminster, Hinshaw, Russ & Associates, and Frank Liu, President, Lovett Interests, Inc. The webcast will also feature a discussion of the competition?s ripple effect on Houston?s design/build community as well as the building ordinances in Houston.

You must register in advance to attend this webcast. Register at the Watershed Academy Webcast Web site at: www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts
