BIASC to Speak at 2016 International Low Impact Development Conference, in Beijing, China
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."
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.

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.
