Low-impact Development Revisited
"One of the hot topics in stormwater these days is the use of low-impact development (LID) techniques to provide stormwater-quality and -quantity benefits. LID practices have been heralded by many as the panacea for the challenges of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and total maximum daily load (TMDL) requirements. Although LID techniques certainly have many positive attributes, the full, long-term implications of their use must be recognized by the regulatory agencies and entities responsible for best management practice (BMP) maintenance. I'm going to play devil's advocate on a couple of issues that have ended up haunting me over the years."
