Presented by David Dods

Raingardens are used to integrate stormwater management features into attractive landscaping. Where cisterns for water harvesting collect rainwater from roofs for storage and reuse, raingardens often collect stormwater runoff that has already contacted the ground where it can pick up added pollutants. Raingardens are used to slow stormwater runoff generated from hardscapes, filter pollutants, and infiltrate water back into the ground in residential, municipal, and commercial applications.

This webinar will provide an introduction to raingarden design and construction. Topics covered will include:

  • Raingarden features and uses
  • How they work
  • Illustrations of applications from across the U.S.
  • Key design elements and construction details
  • Considerations for adapting them in both moist and arid regions of the U.S.

 

Instructor

David Dods joined ARCSA in 2014 and is currently working on his AP certification. David is an environmental scientist and engineer with URS Corporation in Overland Park, Kansas. He designs raingardens and green infrastructure systems for municipal stormwater management projects, and also teaches homeowners how to collect and manage stormwater in their yards. He works on green infrastructure projects across the U.S. and is particularly interested in how to adapt systems in an era of climate change and drought. David is also the co-author of "The Blue Thumb Guide to Raingardens."
