A Study of Successful Green Infrastructures & Stormwater Best Management Practices

LandStudies has designed and built hundreds of green infrastructure projects in Pennsylvania, with approximately 30 located near our Lititz (Lancaster County) Pennsylvania office. LandStudies will share its vast experience in water resource management and watershed planning with Tour participants for the purpose of ensuring EPA compliance, improving community well-being and providing economic value to stakeholders. The hands-on educational Tour showcases nearby green infrastructure sites (with up to 15 years of performance history) and cost-effective best management practices that stack environmental and regulatory benefits.

Tour Sites Demonstrate:

  • Alternative stormwater management techniques
  • Groundwater infiltration in karst geology
  • Nutrient and sediment pollution reduction
  • Water quality improvement to meet municipal MS4 and TMDL requirements
  • Pollution reductions in accordance with the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan
  • Increased stormwater attenuation to potentially reduce localized peak flooding

Tour Features:

  • Quantified water quality and quantity benefits
  • Ecological restoration with environmental and regulatory benefits
  • Cost-benefit analysis for each project
  • Comparison of various techniques
  • Lessons learned

Tours are Ideal For:

  • Engineering, Science & Design Professionals
  • Federal & State Agencies, Municipal Officials
  • Planners & Land Development Professionals
  • Conservation Professionals
  • Landowners (golf courses, farmers, utility companies, corporations)
  • Educators/Teachers/Professors
