Low Impact Development Construction Guide

Credit Valley Conservation Authority - Greater Toronto Area, Canada

Low Impact Development (LID) is a relatively new form of stormwater management & urban design for Ontario where many engineers and contractors are unfamiliar with how to properly construct these systems. For this reason, the Credit Valley Conservation Authority (CVC) teamed up with EOR to develop a Low Impact Development Construction Guide and Contractor’s and Inspector’s Field Guide. The LID Construction Guide alerts engineers of common LID failures for all phases of construction & how to avoid them through specifications guidance. The accompanying C&I Field Guide is developed as a practical field guide with guidance primarily delivered through graphics and photographs illustrating both the DOs & DON’Ts of LID construction techniques.
