Coastal Currents: Turns Out We Were Wrong About Stormwater All Along

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Aug. 13 @ 12:32 p.m. /

Justin Boyd with the City of Eureka and Jessica Hall with GHD (and former Coastal Currents producer and co-host) know about runoff. 

Starting next summer, new construction in Eureka will include elements of what's called Low Impact Development. It's looking pretty great. Cleaner water, less pavement, more greenery, higherp property values, and potentially cheaper construction costs. 

Over the past decade, Low Impact Development (LID) has emerged as an innovative stormwater management approach with a basic principle that is modeled after nature: manage rainfall at the source using uniformly distributed decentralized micro-scale controls. 

Audio

Portland has been on LID for a while now:

Low Impact Development (LID) is an inexpensive, simple approach to protecting water quality. The basic strategy is to conserve beneficial natural features of a site, its "green infrastructure," by avoiding unnecessary paving, grading, and soil compaction. LID often reduces the cost of development and maintenance.

Basic Features

  • Key components of LID are:
  • Minimize impervious surfaces, such as driveways, roofs, concrete pads, and compacted earth.
  • Avoid soil disturbance and compaction.
  • Protect and expand native vegetation.
  • Minimize site clearing.
  • Avoid direct connections between impervious area drainage and streams or storm drains.

 

Parc Güell is an example of Low Impact Development.

Today we're featuring a delightful summer cocktail that uses spiced rum and coffee liquor for a delicious cocktail

Time To Adopt! Humboldt County Animal Shelter Is Full

Cliff Berkowitz / Friday, Aug. 8 @ 9:36 a.m. / Animals

This morning I spoke with Tammy Falor who volunteers with the Humboldt County Animal Shelter. There have a flood of new dogs at the Animal Shelter has caused an over-crowded situation. There are many wonderful dogs ready to be adopted. There are also several that need some medical attention. The shelter will take care of that, but then those dogs will need to fostered. Fostering a dog is a great chance to test drive a pooch to see if you are a good match. Go to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter in McKinleyville to see them in person. You can also go to petharbor.com or Facebook or one of the many rescue groups in our area.
