Water specialists and engineers are increasingly focused on low impact development (LID) technology and stormwater solutions that reduce runoff and provide water quality treatment. At AquaShield™ we developed an LID pyramid to help our clients and engineers select the solution that is best for their stormwater project.
Begin with subsurface infiltration as the most preferred design option to reduce runoff
Consider subsurface infiltration
Look for rainwater harvesting
Biofiltration designs spanning both aspects of runoff reduction and water treatment
Conventional designs including a variety of treatment train options for both water quality and quantity designs
