Low Impact Development (LID)
Low Impact Development (LID) is a design approach that strives to reduce runoff from your site. The basic idea is to mimic the predevelopment hydrology by managing stormwater onsite through infiltration or reuse practices. This is typically achieved by designing multiple, small, decentralized Integrated Management Practices (IMPs) throughout your site.
