The mission of the Central Coast Low Impact Development Initiative (LIDI) is to support the vision of healthy watersheds through the implementation of LID design principles, hydromodification controls, and sustainable development throughout the Central Coast Region.
In 2008, the Central Coast Water Board established a Low Impact Development Endowment Fund (LID fund) with the Bay Foundation of Morro Bay. This fund provides support for the LIDI, which operates in partnership with the UC Davis Extension, Land Use and Natural Resources Program.
LIDI services focus on the planning, design, and implementation of LID projects and programs. This includes regional training, regulatory compliance, site specific project designs, and large scale, long-term community level planning. Work is conducted by the Program Director and by firms and partners selected for their specific expertise related to LID implementation.
Dr. Darla Inglis leads the LIDI program and works with numerous individuals and groups to leverage and coordinate resources, share expertise, and further the science and understanding of LID practices. She brings over 20 years of comprehensive stormwater knowledge to LIDI including Stormwater NPDES Permit compliance, LID, creek restoration, watershed planning, and water quality monitoring.
