The City of Edmonton LID Best Management Practices Design Guide

Posted on Jul 30, 2017 | The City of Edmonton | November 2011

This is the City of Edmonton's guidance document for the implementation of LID best management practices.

This document – the Low Impact Development - Best Management Practices Design Guide (Design Guide) - was developed by the City of Edmonton (City) to provide guidance for the application of low impact development best management practices (LID-BMPs). It provides an overview of LID-BMPs and design guidelines that planners, engineers, developers, and designers can use to integrate LID-BMPs into land development, redevelopment, or retrofit projects. Development of the Design Guide supports the City’s vision of sustainable growth and forwards the environmental goals laid out in The Way We Green, the City’s environmental strategic plan.
