Low Impact Development Or LID Services In Ottawa
We specialize in low impact development or LID and environmentally friendly solutions for water runoff and stormwater management.
What is low impact development? Low impact development (LID) is a modern stormwater management strategy that seeks to mitigate the impacts of increased water runoff and stormwater pollution by implementing strategies to manage water runoff as close to its source as possible.
LID comprises a set of site design strategies that minimize runoff and distributed, small scale structural practices that mimic natural or pre-development hydrology (waters movement in relation to the land) through the processes of infiltration, evapotranspiration, harvesting, filtration and detention of stormwater. These practices can effectively remove nutrients, pathogens, and metals from runoff, and they reduce the volume and intensity of stormwater flows.
LID Services Include:
- Rainwater harvesting systems
- Green roofs
- Downspout disconnection
- Soakaways, infiltration trenches, and chambers
- Bioretention (to help treat runoff)
- Vegetated Filter Strips
- Permeable Pavement
- Dry swales and grass swales
- Perforated pipe systems
If you are considering LID for your residential or commercial property we’d be happy to provide you with an on-site consultation so we can discuss the LID strategy that would be most applicable for your property.
