Low Impact Development 2010: Redefining Water in the City

This collection contains 149 papers that address topics relevant to a sustainable approach to stormwater management using the Low Impact Development (LID) technology. The papers attempt to: promote the use of LID as an effective alternative for or integrated with traditional stormwater management, as well as examine successful watershed management practices related to protection of streams through hydromodification; consider how changes in the traditional urban drainage design paradigm interconnect with ideas of sustainability and green building and help create a constituency for more livable and sustainable cities; inform practitioners throughout the country on strategies to address and go beyond common impediments for implementation of these techniques; accelerate change in the practice of stormwater management, including an information exchange that intends to refine design processes, review procedures, and evaluate construction standards related to LID technologies; and to improve the collective understanding of how vegetation helps manage stormwater, intercept precipitation, expand urban greenspace, and improve urban livability.
