BB. Integrating LID into Local Government Stormwater Programs
BB. INTEGRATING LID INTO LOCAL GOVERNMENT STORMWATER PROGRAMS: A USERS GUIDE

Traditional stormwater BMPs can be land-intensive and tend to fall short of the nutrient load reductions needed to protect our receiving waters. An expanded BMP toolbox improving on traditional stormwater treatment practices and incorporating LID practices is needed to address this problem.  Local governments and some private developers are taking a leadership role promoting LID.   By working with developers, designers, and other community stakeholders, local governments can effectively update Land Development Codes and adopt stormwater BMP design criteria to encourage the use of LID and better protect water resources.
