Step-by-Step Planning of LID Systems



Traditional LID design has been pretty straight-forward – input parameters into an Excel spreadsheet and there’s your pond. But this elementary approach has some drawbacks:
•         You can’t see what your design will look like which can result in mistakes
•         Isolated design prevents a realistic representation of drainage
•         It’s difficult to quantify its effect on the catchment
You’ve heard or seen that there are other design options, such as xpdrainage by XP Solutions that help you produce a better design and save time. But what does the design process look like?
In this webinar we will first discuss the virtues of coherent and easily visualized drainage planning, and then dive into a step-by-step process to quantifiably design the necessary sustainable drainage system for a site: from initial rainfall selection to facility layout, iteration and final acceptable configuration.
