Abstract

LID is a stormwater management approach that has a goal of replicating the pre-development hydrologic and hydraulic regime. It is a site design approach that integrates structural and non-structural approaches on each development or redevelopment project at the source of runoff generation. This allows for customized watershed protection designs that can be constructed incrementally so that the effectiveness of any approach can be refined for the desired regulatory or resource protection objective. This paper will explore and present how this new approach can be used to address many of the limitations that conventional end-of-pipe approaches have for resource protection and habitat restoration. Examples of strategies and the implications for watershed master planning and restoration will be presented.
