Low Impact Development (LID) refers to a set of practices and strategies that aim to manage stormwater runoff in a way that minimizes its impact on the environment. LID techniques include things like green roofs, rain gardens, permeable pavement, and more.
In the United States, some states and local jurisdictions offer tax credits for property owners who implement LID practices. The specifics of these tax credits vary depending on the jurisdiction, but they generally provide a financial incentive for property owners to adopt more environmentally-friendly stormwater management practices.
Low Impact Development (LID) features can have some impact on contractors who are responsible for designing, installing, and maintaining these features. However, there are ways to reduce the impact of LID features on contractors and make the process easier and more efficient.
Last week in our round table ECS talked about ways to encourage LID installation.
