Low-Impact Development Workshops Set

WILMINGTON — Two workshops on low-impact development basics to protect water quality are being offered in early December for real estate professionals.

Participants will learn how land use decisions impact water quality, low-impact development, or LID, techniques, the costs and benefits of implementing LID and about managing stormwater control measures.

The workshop concludes with an outdoor tour of stormwater control measures in Wrightsville Beach. Attendees should dress for weather and walking on grass and pavement.

Real estate professionals will earn four elective continuing education credits through the North Carolina Real Estate Commission.

The workshops will be held 1-5 p.m. Dec. 4 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 5 at the New Hanover County Center (Arboretum) Auditorium, 6206 Oleander Dr, Wilmington. Registration is required to attend the workshops.
