Line 7: Line 7:  
The goal of LID site design strategies is to minimize these two sources of hydrologic impacts. Avoiding downstream impacts through non-structural, innovative site design methods is more economical, operationally efficient, and aesthetically pleasing than concentrating all stormwater management efforts on treating and controlling runoff downstream.

Site designers should exhaust all opportunities for non-structural methods to prevent runoff from being generated before determining how to mitigate the land cover change and storm sewer impacts through structural LID practices and detention ponds.
