Statewide: Low Impact Development Workshops
Low impact development (LID) is a comprehensive approach to site planning, design, and pollution prevention strategies. The approach aims to restore predevelopment drainage patterns and reduce surface runoff volume and pollution. LID might be able to address many of the water quality problems in urban streams and lakes.
For this project, the Center for Research in Water Resources and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, both research units of the University of Texas, provided a series of intensive workshops and consultations in seven Texas urban areas that had impaired waterways: Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, the Lower Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, and Waco.
The project also documented local policies that help or hinder the use of LID, and generated six region-specific guides for selecting and designing the best LID features.
