Low Impact Development Manual for Coastal SC
- Project Decription
The ACE Basin and North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves, the Center for Watershed Protection, and South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium are pleased to announce that they have been funded through a NERRS Science Collaborative grant to develop a Low Impact Development Manual for Coastal South Carolina. This two-year project 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. Continue to check back to this page for more information as the project progresses.
Project partners will be seeking input and feedback from stakeholders thoughout the develpopment of the manual. *Click here* for information about workshops, focus groups and other ways we are staying in touch with stakeholders.
Initial Project Scoping for LID Manual for Coastal SC
This project evolved out of many years of development and design professionals indicating the need for an LID Manual that considers the environmental conditions of the SC 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 an LID manual for coastal South Carolina. Information on these past efforts are available at: http://www.northinlet.sc.edu/LID/Past/
The NERRS Science Collaborative is a cooperative agreement between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of New Hampshire. For more information, visit their website.
