Understanding Low Impact Development
Low Impact Development or LID is an innovative stormwater management approach that treats, infiltrates, filters and retains runoff at the source. LID is an effective alternative to traditional methods of stormwater management, and is being used extensively across Ontario.
On September 24, MVCA hosted Understanding Low Impact Development An Information Session for Designers, Approval Authorities and Operators of Stormwater Management Systems with the support of the City of Ottawa and the Rideau Valley and South Nation Conservation Authorities.
Guest speakers discussed how LID concepts can be successful in highly developed urban municipalities and how simple concepts can be incorporated into existing infrastructure and how well-planned new developments can effectively manage stormwater and runoff.
