Galveston Bay Low Impact Development (LID) Phase I

This project demonstrates LID practices and quantifies reductions in nonpoint source pollutants through monitoring and modeling.


Over the next few decades the City of Houston and Harris County plan to install infrastructure with LID features that help improve water quality. It is important to determine the features that will provide the greatest water quality benefit.

Project Description

Stakeholders selected LID practices to demonstrate, as well as sites and water quality parameters to sample and model. Project staff collected pre-construction stormwater samples at two selected sites. A follow-up project may be proposed to compare pre- and post-construction sample results and use them to evaluate the performance of each LID feature.
