GREEN TECHNOLOGY, Delaware\342\200\231s urban runoff management approach

W.C. Lucas
It is well recognized that the best approach to mitigate watershed impacts of urbanization is to develop runoff management practices that focus on retaining rainfall where it lands. This is a fundamental benefit of Low Impact Design (LID). Recent studies have shown that reductions in runoff volumes, peak flows, and pollutant loads using LID techniques can be substantial. Delaware\342\200\231s Urban Runoff Management Approach to LID is a type of \342\200\234Green Technology\342\200\235 (Lucas, 2004a). It is...
