Why this matters to the lake?
Low Impact Development fosters innovation by upholding and incorporating natural ecosystem services into site design and land use practices. Although the prescribed credits of the LID Certification System cover many methods to reduce impacts from land use, not all practices, methods or approaches are detailed, referenced, or known. There may be benefits to the lake through alternative runoff reduction measures, land preservation, or land use practices related to building design, transportation, or other means.
