     Directions

    Please join us for a highly interactive and hands-on session at our upcoming Splashpad site visit where we will be covering the basics of designing for Sustainable Splashpads.

     This course will bring you up to date with the latest innovations on how to design environmentally responsible Spray parks. Important factors such as site topography and product selection (material, nozzles, controller etc…) are part of the design process. However, the most important considerations still remain by far the water management system. New technology has been developed to maximize the use of water while minimizing environmental impact: the capture and repurpose system.

     

    Course learning objectives: 

    • Identify the factors influencing the overall sustainability of a spray park installation.
    • Learn how to assess sustainability goals and select the appropriate water management system.
    • Learn how to integrate the capture and repurpose system in your design.
    • Learn how to design a spray park based on universal design principles.

     This course qualifies for 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) and covers subjects related to Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW)
