Low Impact Development (LID)
Stormwater Research Program
The genesis of the LID Program came through a major retrofit project funded by a grant from the Washington Department of Ecology. Washington State University Puyallup Research and Extension Center worked with its grant partner, the City of Puyallup, to construct this unique demonstration, education and research program. This project involved the coordinated efforts of many departments, programs, businesses and individuals.
The program is located on the WSU-Puyallup campus and is part of the Washington Stormwater Center—a collaborative partnership effort with the University of Washington-Tacoma Center for Urban Waters—which serves as a clearinghouse for stormwater technology, information, and permittee assistance.
