The Low Impact Development Treatment Train Tool (LID TTT) is designed to help developers, consultants, municipalities and landowners understand and implement more sustainable stormwater management planning and design practices in their watersheds.

The LID TTT focuses on the use of Low Impact Development best management practices (BMPs) to meet stormwater management criteria for the site and can be used to:

The LID TTT is built upon the open source EPA SWMM5 hydrologic model providing a user-friendly interface for novice modelers and cross-compatibility with SWMM5 for further model development.

The LID TTT has been developed in partnership between Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, Credit Valley Conservation, and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.

Integration with this guide is through suggested 'starting point' values for design parameters for the following BMP types:
