Stormwater Management - Calculation & Aesthetics Norfolk Botanical Garden, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, 9AM - 3PM Registration opens at 8:00 a.m.    What do you do with too much water, too quickly? How much water is your site getting? How do you manage all that water with grace and beauty?   Rain Gardens and other small-scale stormwater best management practices (BMPs) pose two major challenges in their design: how much water must the site handle, and managing that water while still looking attractive.   The Virginia Society of Landscape Designers invites designers and other green industry professionals to participate in a day of lecture and guided exercises exploring the aesthetics and site analysis behind successful small-scale stormwater BMPs.   Speakers:   Dr. Eliza Pennypacker,    Dr. Stuart Echols Keynote speakers; The Aesthetics of Stormwater Management     Chris Sonne Calculating Stormwater In-Flow     Virginia Rockwell Tools for Analyzing Soils in the Field   In addition, those registering for the February 2 seminar are invited to participate in a tour (on Friday Feb. 1, before the seminar) of a rain garden which will be used in exercises offered during the seminar.
