Bioretention Engineering Standards
Bioretention, or the use of plants and soil to infiltrate, slow and clean stormwater, is one of the most commonly used structural LID stormwater control measures. LIDI worked with bioretention experts to create a set of standard details that incorporate the most current knowledge of bioretention design and are consistent with the Central Coast Water Board’s adopted Post-Construction Stormwater Control Requirements.
