Abstract: Despite the proven benefits of low impact development (LID) stormwater management (SWM) there are still barriers preventing wide-scale implementation, particularly on private property in developed areas. CVC studied an approach to overcome these challenges and will present on a FCM funded initiative that evaluated the technical and financial feasibility of communal LID systems on private property. An overview of project activities will include:
The presentation will highlight lessons learned and resources that were created to help with transferability of the project concept, including an Aggregation Methodology that lays out a process to consider communal private side SWM in the Municipal Class EA process and an E-Learning module with steps for designing communal LID retrofits.
We will conclude with the current impact of the study and next steps.
