A firm that has experience in putting practices in, designing them, you know, in this case all over North America, is going to bring a lot of information, a lot of knowledge to the developer, to whomever, say, Stantec is working with.</p> <p>And why does that matter? It helps save money.</p> </td> </tr><tr><td width="514" valign="top"><p>Jennifer Young, LID Specialist and Senior How to green Resources Engineer, Stantec</p> <p>LID's really going to become the new normal for storm water. It's going to be accepted and used and that's how it's going to be. Um, I think storm water in general is going to move towards a more integrated planning approach where we look at watershed health on a whole, and look at integrating land use planning and development with the health of the watershed to make sure that we're getting no loss of watershed health.</p> </td> </tr><tr><td width="514" valign="top"><p>Dr. Bill Hunt, Ph.D., P.E., North Carolina State University</p> <p>LID, green infrastructure lends itself to being attractive, that people are going to start realizing the profit of, of this, and you're going to start seeing that more just based upon economic reasons rather than solely governmental drivers.</p> </td> </tr><tr><td width="514" valign="top"><p>Jennifer Young, LID Specialist and Senior How to green Resources Engineer, Stantec</p> <p>Stantec is hiring qualified professionals as well as running a seminar series to help educate our clients on what LID is and what they need to know about it. We're also really looking at the research side of things. We have a research fund that allows us to fund LID research including monitoring and other types of research. We also develop relationships with people like Dr. Hunt to make sure that we're on the leading edge of research and that we know what's going on with the LID.</p> </td> </tr></tbody></table>
