In this book, you will learn more about an exciting new design strategy – the Low Impact Development (LID) approach – for managing stormwater runoff. Unlike other methods, LID mimics the natural and pre-existing site assets to minimize stormwater flow. Whether you are a planner, designer or homeowner, this guide will assist you in developing a stormwater management system that controls the quantity and quality of stormwater discharge. During the past several years, developers, design engineers and regulators have successfully promoted LID stormwater techniques in the Grand Traverse region. This guidebook is intended to accelerate that progress and to foster LID as the norm rather than the exception.
