Low Impact Development
One Nature was hired by the City of Stamford to create a new Low Impact Development (LID) project to address sedimentation issues in an important tributary to the Long Island Sound. Our team successfully converted a compacted dirt parking area into a formalized park entryway that treats stormwater runoff prior to it entering the waterway.
Some of the LID practices employed in the project include:
- Curb Cuts
- Permeable Pavers
- Vegetated Filter Strips
- Soil Restoration
The project was completed in the Fall of 2015. By the end of the 2016 growing season, the landscape should be a lush and beautiful contribution to the entry experience of the park.
Note: While One Nature developed the conceptual vision for this project and performed construction management, professional design services for this project were provided by Hudson Land Design Professional Engineering, P.C.
