Low Impact Development (LID)

LID practices can reduce runoff and pollutants entering the storm drain system. The Truckee Meadows Structural Controls Design and Low Impact Development Manual covers relevant LID requirements and design guidance for the Truckee Meadows.

In general, Low Impact Development (LID):

  • Is a growing practice in stormwater management with principles modeled after nature
  • Strives to mimic the pre-development hydrology
  • Manages urban runoff at the source
  • Uses local and smaller scale controls as opposed to a more centralized stormwater treatment
  • Uses practices and techniques to capture, filter, store, evaporate, detain and infiltrate runoff close to the source

To learn more about LID, reference past technical trainings hosted by SWPCC, for detailed information:
