The Case Study

EPA Low Impact Development Course

The Situation

The Low Impact Development Center was contracted by the EPA to introduce federal, state, and local transportation departments to the LID concept. The Center asked GKY to help them develop a course of instruction that combines a general overview with examples and strategies the departments could apply to linear projects.

The Solution

Using PowerPoint™, GKY developed a course that provides a graphic-rich overview on LID basics that could also serve as a reference for future development. This course has been used nationwide to ground transportation personnel in LID principles.
