Abstract:

Low Impact Development incorporates proven storm water management principles and technologies into project planning and design in order to manage storm water as close to where the precipitation lands as possible. This is done to maintain or restore the pre-development hydrology of the site, reduce runoff volume and peak runoff rates, and reduce the potential transport of pollutants to receiving waters. Cisternsrain barrels, rain gardens, bi-retention cells, soil amendments, reforestation, permeable pavement asphaltconcrete, pavers or blocks, grass swales andbio-swales, green roofs.
