LID Monitoring Guide

CVC Stormwater Management and Low Impact Development Monitoring and Performance Assessment Guide.

Almost every year since 1995, Ontario has had a state of emergency linked to severe weather. Climate change is predicted to exacerbate the risks and challenges municipalities face today with aging infrastructure and growth pressures. The serious impact of storm events, such as the one that took place on July 8, 2013 in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), calls attention to the need to build additional stormwater capacity within our urban areas to handle these large, intense rainfall events.

Green infrastructure, including low impact development (LID), is gaining traction as an approach to enhance stormwater protection within existing urban areas to reduce stress on aging infrastructure. LID has been found to build resiliency, optimize water and wastewater treatment costs, and improve watershed health and the local economy.
