Low–Impact Development Management Practices Evaluation Computer Module
Abstract:Low-impact development (LID) is becoming a well-accepted process for controlling urban stormwater impacts from new development and redevelopment. It also provides integrated management practices (IMPs) that are effective control techniques for retrofitting existing development. The successful integration of LID in site design is enhanced by providing a tool that quantitatively describes the benefits from minimizing the hydrologic impacts that result from development as well as improving stormwater quality. Furthermore, such a tool would effectively complement urban TMDL development and implementation. A computer module has been developed that integrates simple, process-based hydraulic algorithms into a medium for evaluating the effectiveness and strategizing the implementation of LID.
