Past events

On Thursday, March 21, 2019, a group of 13 from the Northern Section of NVASLA convened in downtown Reno at The Depot for a tour of low impact development projects in Reno.   Low impact development (LID), as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency, is an approach to land (re)development that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible.  LID typically includes site design strategies to direct stormwater from impervious areas to pervious areas such as landscape buffers and islands where storm water can infiltrate into the ground.   Our group hosted this program because of increasing requirements to include LID design features in projects by the City of Reno and because of overall interest in green infrastructure.
