Slow it, Spread it, Sink it (it = stormwater), LID and Green Streets - Click Here
Slow, it, Spread it, Sink it. Stormwater needs to go back into the ground, as most did before development occurred.
Click on the Title here for an attached newsletter from San Mateo, an example of a municipality utilizing green design practice to keep pollutants and nutrients out of the adjoining estuary.
Slow it, Spread it, Sink it.
San Mateo has a great LID Design Manual full of ideas and design drawings. Due to the manual's size, I've divided up the chapters and in some instances the pages and included all into a folder. Click on the link and open each chapter as needed.
Excellent design examples can be found throughout the entire manual. Let me know if you find the information useful - you can email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
