Bioretention Technology: Design, Construction, and Maintenance

  • Next Course

    Dates and registration coming soon

    The main objective of this course is to familiarize practitioners with bioretention technology, focusing on their design, construction, and maintenance. Bioretention systems are constructed under a variety of configurations and within a diversity of settings, and the design parameters can be configured to target specific hydrologic performance and water quality treatment goals. Proper construction and maintenance are key to ensuring system function over the long-term.

    The knowledge gained throughout this course will enable the participant to list the different materials and configurations of bioretention systems, explain how bioretention systems function, design bioretention systems for a diverse range of settings and performance objectives, list the steps in the construction process, and identify the types of maintenance needed for various problems.

    Instructors

    Michael Clar, P.E., DWRE, CFM, and Robert Brown, PH.D, P.E.
