Assess Sustainable Stormwater Management with Low Impact Development Controls

Part of the Hydraulics and Hydrology Video Series (more info)

Do you have an interest in applying sustainable stormwater management practices to promote infiltration, evaporation and nutrient utilization? Did you know that CivilStorm and SewerGEMS have a Low Impact Development (LID) element that can be used with your existing hydrology and hydraulic model to assess the impact of bioretential cells, porous pavers, rain barrels, etc. To learn more, watch this short video and check out the additional resources in the "See Also" section. The video covers the following:

  • Layout and configuration of LID elements
  • Configuration of the LID Controls dialog
  • Comparison of catchment runoff results before and after adding Low Impact Development

Applicable products/versions:

  • SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, StormCAD and CivilStorm V8i SELECTseries 3 and higher

This video is part of a growing library of useful information designed to provide effective tips and information about time-saving product features within Bentley’s Hydraulics and Hydrology products.
