Course Description:
This workshop will provide practical system design approaches implementing pervious concrete pavements as a solution to reducing stormwater runoff from impervious pavements and surfaces. Presenters will share with attendees their approaches and methodologies used to provide stormwater solutions for actual projects. This workshop will help attendees develop details and write specifications for pervious concrete pavement systems.

Speaker Bio:
Christopher J. Estes is president of Estes Design, Inc., an environmental design and consulting company that specializes in low impact development, storm water quality, and environmental regulatory services.

Mr. Estes received a B.A. in Landscape Architecture from the School of Environmental Design at the University of Georgia in 1988. Before starting Estes Design, Mr. Estes worked for the City of Charlotte Engineering Department for 11 years, including 9 years in the Storm Water Division.

Currently, Mr. Estes is focusing his efforts on the restoration and protection of water quality by targeting sources of negative impact associated with impervious pavement. His most recent projects include combining best management practices such as bio-retention and pervious concrete. His current research is storm water infiltration rates into piedmont soils.

Who Should Attend:
This workshop is intended for civil engineers, architects, landscape architects, public works officials and others who design pavements and stormwater management systems. Contractors, product suppliers and land developers will also benefit from this workshop.
