Conservation Sudbury Completes Low Impact Development Pilot Project

On Thursday evening Conservation Sudbury held a walk-through and grand opening of a low impact development (LID) pilot project recently completed in partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury. The event, held at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, was attended by community members as well as project partners including Greenland International Consulting, TeraNorth Construction & Engineering Limited and Hollandia Land and Environmental Solutions.

LID, also known as green infrastructure, is a storm-water management approach that uses natural features such as specialized soils and native tree, shrub, and perennial species as its infrastructure. The goal of LID is to mimic pre-development hydrological conditions.
