StormTrap - Stormwater Low Impact Development (LID)
Low impact development (LID) seeks to remove the negative impact of development by mimicking the pre-development hydrology of the project site. The old strategy only matched the peak flow rates, while the LID strategy reduces the volume of runoff produced by development. Efficient land utilization is at the heart of LID, because it takes into account the inherent value of the land and the benefits of preserving the natural landscape. Installing underground StormTrap systems can contribute to LID goals by maximizing the use of the land. This reduces the footprint of the developed area and allows forested or other natural areas to remain undisturbed.
Utilize for Irrigation or Indoor Greywater
StormTrap offers rainwater harvesting applications that collect stormwater on site for use in irrigation or as greywater inside buildings. These sustainable stormwater management practices adhere to low impact development (LID) principles for runoff reduction and also contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) design credits for Sustainable Sites and Water Efficiency.
