Presentation on Low Impact Development Tuesday, Dec. 5

Mark Clark, assistant professor in the University of Florida’s department of Soil & Water Science, will deliver a presentation on “Low Impact Development” or LID, Tuesday, Dec. 5, at noon in room 285D. The presentation is hosted by the UF Conservation Clinic. LID offers an approach to development that minimizes land development impacts, and moves treatment technologies all the way up the watershed and to the individual house lot. The Conservation
Clinic has been looking at how this can be accomplished through homeowner associations as a matter of law, in a way that gives comfort to state regulators, who have been wary of some LID techniques.
