Bioretention is a low impact development technique designed to enhance water quality and to mimic pre-developed hydrologic conditions. This online course provides an introduction to the integrated management practice of bioretention. The course content is based on the Prince George’s County Maryland publication The Bioretention Manual Chapter 1, 2002 (31 pages). This publication introduces the goals and benefits of bioretention, teaches about the biological processes and cycles involved, introduces the reader to sizing criteria, and introduces the reader to different bioretention area types and design themes. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
