Our Low Impact Development Planning & Construction Services

Low impact development (LID) is designed to manage stormwater on site in a way that mimics natural processes as much as feasible and to reduce the amount of runoff that leaves the site. This typically involves various techniques that infiltrate stormwater through the soil substrate (a matrix of soil, gravel, cobble mix) and eventually into the groundwater water supply system. This matrix also has the benefit of filtering pollutants out of the water as it moves very slowly towards the groundwater. This is also known as “bioretention”. Excess water that exceeds the water holding capacity of the site can be directed for re-use on the site – typically for landscape irrigation, but also for non-drinking water purposes. Excess water can also be routed to other off-site “bioretention” areas. Another major element of LID development is to minimize non-permeable surfaces on the site, e.g., concrete and asphalt pavement and to plant as many long-lived trees on site as possible where water can be stored in the trees and slowly move through the tree through a process known as evapotranspiration.

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 the source of rainfall. LID practices reduce the amount of stormwater reaching a surface water system thus helping to maintain natural stream channel functions and habitat. Groundwater Recharge. Stormwater runoff that travels through pipes and drains into surface waters cannot soak into the ground.

Low impact development techniques can be designed and constructed in every type or scale of development whether it is a park, a street improvement, residential or commercial or industrial park developments.

We offer a range of consulting services to help our clients build sustainable communities that reduce their impact on the environment and surrounding ecosystems.
