This workshop addresses best management practices for green infrastructure. The city of Atlanta recently amended its Post-Development Stormwater Management Ordinance an adopted the 2009 Coastal Stormwater Supplement to the Georgia Stormwater Management Manual. The significance of the supplement is that it makes specific reference to compost use and recommends compost be incorporated into existing soils, using a rototiller or similar equipment, to a depth of 18 inches and at an application rate necessary to obtain a final average organic matter content of 8-12%. Compost is certainly the most cost effective way to achieve this goal!
