IRVINE, Calif. - June 10, 2016 - PRLog -- This will be the first year that the International Low Impact Development Conference will be held outside of the U.S. The Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIASC) has been invited to speak at the conference in Beijing, China to teach low impact design in integrated water resource management during the Concurrent Technical Session IV, ID/GI Implementation in Southern California II workshop.

BIASC's Director of Environmental Affairs and Technical Director for Construction Industry Coalition on Water Quality (CICWQ), Dr. Mark Grey, will be speaking about the "Experience and Perspectives on Using Low Impact Development (LID) best management practices (BMPs) for Stormwater Runoff Management in California." He will be presenting on Tuesday, June 28 in meeting room 408 from 3:30 - 5:00 pm during the Concurrent Technical Session IV, ID/GI Implementation in Southern California II.

The International Low Impact Development Conference, organized by the Tsinghua University will take place from June 26 to June 29, 2016 at the China National Convention Center Grand Hotel in Beijing, China. The conference will cover areas such as water quality and quantity control standards as well as proprietary technologies and modeling of urban storm water runoff for LID planning and design.

The location of the conference holds significance of BMPs for LID. In China, the rapid urbanization process in recent decades has led to a worsening "city syndrome" situation, such as urban flooding, water pollution, heat-island effects and ecologic deterioration, that exists in many urban areas. As a result, in recent years much attention and efforts have been given to finding solutions to these and other environmental problems.

The International LID conference (http://www.lid2016-china.org/en/index.asp) provides an excellent opportunity for LID and green infrastructure (GI) professionals to exchange experiences, share results and implementation strategies with hundreds of colleagues, of various backgrounds and experiences, from all over the world.

LID has gained widespread recognition as an ecologically sound and sustainable approach to storm water management, especially in terms of urban storm water runoff quantity and quality control since the early 2000's. The international forum for storm water management has continued to provide a place for professionals to present the latest developments, technologies and case studies related to LID and GI technology since 2004.
