[ARCHIVED] Low Impact Development Practices


Low Impact Development (LID) refers to techniques that help manage stormwater runoff and protect the public water supply. The Town of Woodbridge updated its Plan of Conservation and Development in 2016 with a chapter devoted to Sustainability and a sub-section devoted to Water Quality and Conservation. This sub-section includes information addressing the importance of Low Impact Development to minimize the effect of land development on the water supply. As home to many acres of watershed land, Woodbridge has maintained a special relationship with water quality efforts since the precursor companies to the Regional Water Authority acquired Woodbridge land in the late 1800s.

The Beecher Road School Bioswale projects, located in the north parking lot and along the perimeter of the First Grade wing are LID Demonstration Projects that help educate the students and greater Beecher community on the importance of sustainability efforts regarding stormwater management. The photo above shows the Bioswale in the north parking lot.

LID Brochure Available

A LID Brochure is available on the Town website (click here for PDF) and printed copies are also available on display in the Land Use Office at Town Hall. This brochure aims to disseminate information and educational material for further review by anyone who would like to implement LID best-practices on their property in Woodbridge.
