Project Description

Low Impact Development for Industrial Areas

The LID Center worked with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) to develop a guide for using low impact development to address water quality compliance in Naval industrial areas. This was done as a Naval Navy Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration (NESDI) research program. The guidance manual includes an extensive literature review on LID technologies that are appropriate for industrial uses, fact sheets, and case studies. The document can be found here:

A comprehensive research background and strategy to use LID to address non-point source stormwater runoff loads from industrial areas can be found here:
