The ACE Basin and North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves, the Center for Watershed Protection, and South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium are pleased to announce a draft version for a Low Impact Development Manual for Coastal South Carolina. This marks a significant milestone in the two-year project, which will provide local decision-makers with stormwater engineering specifications, land use planning resources, and site design practices that are tailored to the conditions of the South Carolina coast. This one-day workshop is designed to obtain your feedback on the current draft of the LID Manual, describe how the manual has been received by state regulatory agencies, and share local examples of incentives for using LID practices. During this program, you will also learn about the site design guidelines and specifications for structural best management practices. Your input is greatly valued and participant discussion will help the project team address the following questions: • Are there any concepts in the manual that are unclear or require modifications? • Are the specifications for the structural BMPs sufficiently informative and appropriate for coastal application? • What local ordinances and incentives exist for LID practices? • What are the general opinions regarding the manual’s appearance and organization?
