Low Impact Development (LID) has several advantages over traditional storm water management approaches. Since impervious pavement is the main source of storm water runoff, LID strategies recommend permeable paving for hard surfaces. The course discusses LID, its goals and principles, and how they are achieved. It provides an overview of permeable pavements, and more particularly, plastic permeable grid paver systems and how they support LID goals.
