Low Impact Development Manual for Coastal South Carolina

This project evolved out of many years of development and design professionals indicating the need for a Low Impact Development (LID) Manual that considers the environmental conditions along the South Carolina coast. A number of scoping workshops, focus groups, and a survey of engineers, planners, developers, and other design professionals resulted in a formal content assessment of a Low Impact Development manual for coastal South Carolina. The manual aims to provide local decision-makers with stormwater engineering specifications, land use planning resources, and site design practices that are tailored to the conditions of the South Carolina coast.
