Low Impact Development (LID) Atlas and Map: Request for Submissions

Do you know of any Low Impact Development (LID) practices (rain gardens, cisterns, green roofs, permeable pavement, etc.) in your area? Please take a moment to read about this project and send the Winooski NRCD info about LID pratices in Central Vermont.

About the project:

The Winooski NRCD and UVM Extension Lake Champlain Sea Grant are working in partnership to create a Low Impact Development (LID) Atlas and Map, which will be part of the larger National LID Atlas (http://clear.uconn.edu/tools/lidmap/) created by the National Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) Network. The Vermont LID Atlas & Map will raise awareness of LID projects as a solution to residential stormwater management, reinforce the link between LID projects and water quality, and provide residents with successful examples of local LID projects. For more information visit: http://www.vacd.org/winooski/winooski_LIDatlas.shtml

To include an LID practice in the Vermont LID Atlas & Map, fill out both sides of the pdf form – found at http://vacd.org/winooski/winooski_LIDatlas.shtml and mail your completed form to: Ashley Lidman, Winooski NRCD, 1193 S Brownell Rd., Suite 35, Williston, VT 05495 by September 1, 2009.
