The Alabama Low Impact Development Handbook.

The Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) has released The Alabama Low Impact Development Handbook.  The Alabama LID Handbook is a web-based resource that provides recommendations for professionals seeking to plan, design, construct, plant, and maintain stormwater control measures.  

Low impact development (LID) minimizes stormwater runoff through the use of natural systems in site design, minimizing the site footprint of disturbance, and infiltrating stormwater as close as possible to its source. LID supports a more natural hydrologic cycle, decreases polluted stormwater runoff, improves local stream health, and promotes sustainable communities that integrate ecology, economy, and societal benefits.
