Barrett L. Kays, Ph.D., FASLA will present a seminar regarding "Amending and Designing Urban Landscape Soils for Enhanced Stormwater Infiltration".  The presentation will deal with new research on amending site soils to enhance infiltration, as well as, designing sand-based structural soils.  Kays will discuss the basic principles of how water moves in soils, and how this affects storage of stormwater.  He will discuss how he has applied these principles for some of his notable projects including: Restoration of Great Lawn & Belvedere Lake in Central Park, NYC, Hudson River Promenade, NYC, Longwood Gardens, Philadelphia, Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial, Washington, DC, National Air & Space Museum, Washington, DC, Moore Square Park, Raleigh, and North Carolina Art Museum, Raleigh.  His methods can be applied to residential, office, and commercial developments, as well as, various public projects.
