The GreenHome Institute’s – “Using EPA’s National Stormwater Calculator” – Free CE Webinar
April 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
About this event
EPA’s National Stormwater Calculator (SWC) is a software application tool that estimates the annual amount of rainwater and frequency of runoff from a specific site using green infrastructure as low impact development controls. The SWC is designed for use by anyone interested in reducing runoff from a property, including site developers, landscape architects, urban planners, and homeowners.
Whether you want to protect against more planned rain events from climate change, comply with city laws and incentives, or meet LEED or green building goals, the EPA National Storm Calc is here to help you!
