The Advanced Stormwater Design webcast series is for the fairly advanced designer or plan reviewer and the intent is to go above and beyond teaching basic stormwater design and rather, include the latest and greatest versions of the specs as they have evolved over time while presenting some tips and tricks from expert practitioners in the field for ensuring project success.


The webcast will include an overview of the key elements of design including feasibility, design features and variations, material specs and tips for designing the practice to reduce the maintenance burden. We will also include a simple design example, some unique design innovations for dealing with tough sites, identify the critical steps in construction inspection and highlight some of the key design differences in the Bay states.

Also, North Creek Nursery has put together a Landscape Plug Manual which we feel is an excellent resource on plants. You can access (for a fee) the manual here.
