Low Impact Development (LID) Urban Design Tools Website


The site provides watershed managers with a new set of tools and techniques that can be used to meet regulatory and receiving water protection program goals for urban retrofits, re-development projects, and new development sites. LID technology is an alternative comprehensive approach to stormwater management. It can be used to address a wide range of Wet Weather Flow (WWF) issues, including Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs), National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Phase II permits, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) permits, Nonpoint Source Program goals, and other Water Quality Standards.
