Green Design / Low Impact Development

Low Impact Design

For examples of low-impact storm water management, refer to our fact sheets on porous pavement, bioretention, engineered systems, native landscaping and swales. Water quality is important to all of us. Protecting our lakes, rivers, and streams is critical to preserving the natural character of our rural areas, and maintaining a high quality of life in our villages and cities.
