The Statewide Low Impact Development Training Program will assist you—the design, construction and maintenance community—in properly applying LID principles for the implementation of LID best management practices (BMPs).

The curriculum provides fundamental, practical, and technical information targeted at the various disciplines engaged in LID implementation. Training topics include: bioretention, permeable pavement, green roof and rainwater harvesting design; site assessment, planning and layout; operations and maintenance for bioretention and permeable pavement installations; NPDES permit requirements; and more.

Statewide LID Certificate Program

Certificates of completion are available for the LID Design and the LID Operations & Maintenance Certificate Tracks. These certificates will be awarded to those who A) attend the required classes; and B) pass the associated assessments as described by the Statewide LID Training Program. For more information, please visit the LID Certificate Program Policies Page.

The Statewide LID Training Program has officially launched an online assessment system for those whom have taken certificate track courses. If you have taken one or more of the courses required for the certificates you should have received an email with login information. If you did not receive an email and believe you should have, or have questions regarding the Statewide LID Certificates (Design and/or Operations & Maintenance): please contact: lid.inquiries@wsu.edu at the Washington Stormwater Center or call 253-445-4586.
