Join the USGBC - Illinois Chapter's, North/Northwest Suburban Branch for a program at Libertyville's new Lake County Permit Facility, the greenest project Lake County has created to date.  The case study and building tour program, Stormwater Best Management Practices, will be presented by the project manager and Lake County's watershed planner.  This is a program not to be missed!

Through this presentation and tour of Lake County's new Central Permitting Facility, participants will learn about the Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP's) and the green building methods that were incorporated into this exciting project.  Participants will get a first-hand look at the facilities green roof, bioswales, raingardens, wetland detention basins and permeable paving systems.  Find out what worked as planned and what remedial actions were taken to address unexpected challenges.  The stormwater BMP's  and natural landscaping methods utilized on this project provide excellent examples for those interested in earning LEED points in the Sustainable Sites and Water Efficiency categories.
