Low Impact Development (LID) details for alternative stormwater management

The Greater Phoenix Green Infrastructure Handbook: Low Impact Development (LID) Details for Alternative Stormwater Management (LID Handbook) is now available for public and private sector use!

LID techniques

The LID Handbook includes guidance and technical standard details and specifications for select LID techniques, so local design, planning, and development professionals can more easily integrate green infrastructure (GI) and LID in new and/or retrofit projects throughout Maricopa County. LID techniques included in the Handbook:

  • Bioretention planters
  • Bioretention systems
  • Bioswales – vegetated or rock
  • Curb extensions
  • Curb openings
  • Domed overflow structures
  • Permeable pavements
  • Sediment traps
  • Stormwater harvesting basins

Have a suggested improvement, change, or addition to the LID Handbook?

Please email here to submit your suggestion with a description. Our goal is to continue improving and growing LID information and resources available to local Arizona communities.
