Signs of the Tide: Put a LID on Pollution

Presented by;

Online registration is now closed - join us at Queen Bee's tonight!

Urban runoff, the single biggest threat to San Diego water, impacts fishable, swimmable and drinkable waters. On Dec. 6, we invite you to Signs of the Tide: Put a LID on Pollution to find out how low impact development (LID) can stop urban runoff by integrating it into our developed urban neighborhoods.This event has a special focus on North Park and the issues specific to soils, development and redevelopment in the neighborhood.

A moderator will lead a panel of experts including:
Bill Harris, supervising public information officer for the City of San Diego, who will talk about current City of San Diego low impact development projects, possible ones and how the city approaches LID.

Shawn Weedon, senior engineer from Geocon Incorporated will talk about soils found around North Park and the issues these soils present for water drainage.

Robert Thiele, principal architect at Robert Thiele Associates in San Diego, who will discuss living systems infrastructure and share some of his projects that have successfully integrated low impact development design.

To highlight the real-world application of LID in San Diego, Coastkeeper connected landscape architecture students with an existing property in North Park. At the event, students will unveil their LID plans for that property to showcase how this innovative thinking can change North Park's urban lanscape to better handle stormwater influx.

The event is open to the public - and there is a $5 entry fee at the door. We will provide light food and refreshments for you to enjoy.

The event will take place from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m at Queen Bee's, 3925 Ohio St, San Diego, CA 92104.

Event Partners: San Diego Green Building Council, New School of Architecture and North Park Mainstreet Association
