How does the LID Ordinance affect my project?

The LID ordinance requires rainwater from a three-quarter inch rainstorm to be captured, infiltrated and, or used, onsite at most developments and redevelopments where more than 500 square feet of hardscape is added. Most single family residences can comply in a more simple way by installing adequate BMPs such as rain barrels, permeable pavement, rainwater storage tanks, or infiltration swales to contain the water. See LID Handbook for more information about the BMPs.
