Description
A low-impact development (LID) design approach is defined as a combination of hydrologically functional site design with pollution prevention measures to compensate for land development impacts on hydrology and water quality. This course will provide an overview and introduction into the philosophy, objectives, various design approaches, economic and environmental benefits, and management practices of low-impact development. Specifically, course will demonstrate how to develop land and maintain the predevelopment hydrologic regime by using current structural and nonstructural storm water management technological approaches.
