Abstract

Low Impact Development (LID) allows opportunities for stormwater control structures that have a positive impact on water quality as opposed to simply having an effect on flood mitigation. One potential challenge for sustainable stormwater implementation is to find a knowledgeable group (engineering firm and contractor) for design and instillation. Another challenge can arise in being able to justify selecting the "knowledgeable group" when the lowest bid generally receives the contract. In the past, system performance has suffered and local officials have taken criticism in part because the lowest rather than the most informed or experienced bid was selected. This paper presents two case studies examining the challenges of a revegetation project and a bioswale in the Kansas City metropolitan area in order to illustrate a few issues that have come up.
