What is L.I.D.?

Low Impact Development (LID) is an approach to environmentally friendly land use development. It includes landscaping and design techniques that attempt to maintain the natural,  -developed ability of a site to manage rainfall. LID techniques capture water on site, filter it through vegetation, and let it soak into the ground.
