Stormwater Management
Low Impact Development Manuals

Low Impact Development (LID) is a site design strategy that seeks to mimic the pre-development site hydrology.  LID techniques include the use of small scale landscape-based best management practices (BMPs) to treat and infiltrate storm water runoff.  LID also requires preservation and protection of environmentally sensitive features such as riparian buffers, wetlands, steep slopes, valuable trees, flood plains, woodlands, native vegetation and permeable soils.

More information on these requirements is provided below.
