LID Capstone Project Taking Shape....

Low Impact Development is one of the newest curriculum programs at HCC. Candace Stimson is one of the pioneering group of LID students at HCC being led by our LID instructor Tamara Graham.

The project was part of the mitigation that was required with the disposal site construction and sediment removal project that will be completed at Lake Junaluska next winter. All of this was made possible with the NC Water Resources grant that Lake Junaluska was awarded in September.

Candace created the plans for the project, developed the plant lists, coordinated the plantings with HCC students (Thanks BIO 120 Botany Students!), and managed the project. Dave McKay, of RCF Construction, helped with the excavation, hauling, and grading.
