Low impact development (LID) is designed to reduce the negative impacts of traditional development on our water resources. The goal of LID is to preservation the predevelopment hydrology of a site. Site-level practices, such as rain gardens, swales, and pervious pavements, are some of the stormwater treatment practices that can be used to work towards this goal.
This website allows you to retrieve LID sites by clicking on the interactive map or selecting sites by the LID treatment practice. The CT LID Atlas is part of UConn CLEAR's National LID Atlas which can be found at lidmap.uconn.edu.
We hope that these tools can provide the information necessary for anyone who wants to start using these innovative techniques to protect our water resources!
