Low Impact Development is moving to the forefront of development procedures. It looks to maintain or improve water quality at the level that was existing prior to development. If water quality and water quantity were improved on all new construction and all new redevelopment projects, then we would see improving water quality across the board. If We only use LID on new constructions we will only be keeping the water quality at the same level as it was predevelopment. LID and LEED can save money in the short-run, long-run, or both.
