A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

LID efforts are focused towards design principles that can be utilized at the site-level to control stormwater and strive to replicate the pre-development hydrology of the site. Green infrastructure generally refers to a broader, big picture view of a community or watershed and focuses on a coordinated effort of the University to employ these practices along with involvement in land conversation.
