GLRPPR Sector Resource: Low Impact Development Manual for Michigan: A Design Guide for Implementers and Reviewers

Title:
Low Impact Development Manual for Michigan: A Design Guide for Implementers and Reviewers

Abstract:
Low Impact Development (LID) is the cornerstone of stormwater management with the goal of mimicking a site's presettlement hydrology by using design techniques that infiltrate, filter, store, evaporate, and detain runoff close to its source. Because LID uses a variety of useful techniques for controlling runoff, designs can be customized according to local regulatory and resource protection requirements, as well as site constraints. This manual provides communities, agencies, builders, developers, and the public with guidance on how to apply LID to new, existing, and redevelopment sites. The manual provides information on integrating LID from the community level down to the site level. It not only outlines technical details of best management practices, but also provides a larger scope of managing stormwater through policy decision, including ordinances, master plans, and watershed plans.[PDF, 512 p.]
