LIDI Bioretention Standard Details and Technical Specifications (March 2013)

Bioretention, or the use of plants and soil to infiltrate, slow, and clean stormwater, is one of the most commonly used LID stormwater treatment control measures. The Central Coast Low Impact Development Initiative (LIDI) worked with bioretention experts to create a set of standard details and technical specifications that incorporate the most current knowledge of bioretention design and are consistent with the Central Coast Water Board’s newly adopted Post-Construction Stormwater Control Requirements. The bioretention standard details and technical specifications are available to all LID practitioners at the LIDI website and are provided in native file format (Microsoft Word, AutoCAD DWG) to facilitate incorporation into project design and municipal codes and ordinances.
