There is a free webinar on DNR Technical Standard 1009 Rain Garden  on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m.

The Rain Garden standard was developed through the Wisconsin Standards Oversight Council (SOC) Full Process and published by the Department of Natural Resources in September 2018.  This technical standard addresses the design, installation, and maintenance of rain gardens in residential and commercial applications.  This standard may also assist counties in meeting treated impervious surface requirements contained in shoreland zoning per NR 115, Wis. Adm. Code.  The training webinar will be provided by members of the team that developed the standard, including Perry Lindquist from Waukesha County Department of Parks and Land Use and Roger Bannerman from USGS.  This webinar is free and no prior registration is necessary.  One Soil & Water Management Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and one Professional Development Hour (PDH) will be offered.
