Low Impact Development - Buzzards Bay National Estuary

Description: 

The goal of LID is to mimic a site's predevelopment hydrology by using design techniques that infiltrate, filter, store, evaporate, and detain runoff close to its source. The Buzzards Bay National Estuary Program is an advisory and planning unit of the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management. We receive funding from, and are part of, the US Environmental Protection Agency's National Estuary Program. Created in 1985, the Buzzards Bay NEP completed a Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for the Bay in 1991.
