Storm Water Management

Quick Facts

Decaying leaves and organic materials in the storm drain increase bacteria and mosquito production and decrease oxygen essential for fish life.



LID and Green Infrastructure

Low-impact development (LID) is an approach to managing stormwater runoff as part of green infrastructure. LID emphasizes conservation and use of on-site natural features to protect water quality. Green infrastructure reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social and economic benefits.
