Low Impact Development Program
Welcome to the WSU Puyallup Low Impact Development Research Program
The mission of the WSU Puyallup LID Research Program is to reduce the impacts of stormwater on streams, lakes, wetlands, and coastal areas through effective, research-based application of LID management principles and practices.
The second Wednesday of each month at 10 am, guided tours of the WSU Puyallup Research and Extension Center's Low Impact Development areas will be held. These tours can accommodate groups of up to 25 people. For further information and to schedule your group, please contact Aaron Copado.
WSU Puyallup LID Research Program is one of the largest installations in the nation focusing on the rapidly expanding field of low impact development or green stormwater infrastructure and offers the unique capability to conduct long-term research on full-scale, replicated bioretention and permeable pavement facilities.
LID Project DatabaseSharing lessons-learned and project successes is as important as sharing research data that your project is based on. As part of our information-sharing efforts, we are compiling a database of Low Impact Development Projects in the Northwest.
