Construction

Although projects with LID features may look like conventional development projects, there are key differences construction contractors need to understand to build successful LID projects. 

LIDI has developed construction training videos, technical assistance documents, and local material vendor lists to support LID construction. The videos provided below provide insight related to construction of LID facilities.

LID for Contractors and Developers - Technical Assistance Memo

Although projects with LID features may look like conventional development projects, there are key differences for contractors and developers to understand as part of bidding or cost estimating, construction, and maintenance. The goal of this TAM is to give contractors and developers who are new to LID pointers to help identify aspects of LID implementation that impact cost, affect project schedule, or require special construction procedures.

Best Practices for Bioretention and Overflow Structures

The goal of this graphic is to alert contractors and designers to critical bioretention design and construction considerations. There are two versions of this graphic. They both contain the same content, but one has a white background and the other is more color heavy with a blue background.
