schematic showing better site design practices to minimize stormwater runoff and mitigate stormwater runoff
This schematic illustrates better site design practices to minimize stormwater runoff and mitigate stormwater runoff.

Better site design includes a series of techniques that reduce impervious cover, conserve natural areas, and use pervious areas to more effectively treat stormwater runoff and promote the treatment train approach to runoff management. The goal of better site design is to reduce runoff volume and mitigate site impacts when decisions are being made about proposed layout of a development site. These techniques are known by many different names, such as low impact development (LID), design with nature, sustainable development, sustainable site design (for LEED certification) and conservation design.
