LID in New Schools: The LAUSD Example.

Web Abstract: 
Presents a number of case studies for new school designs that incorporate low-impact development (LID) techniques, as well as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. The case studies highlight the special considerations that accompany LID implementation for new school projects within the District and include techniques such as infiltration, biofiltration, use of site-specific native plants, green roofs, and community-based wetlands. The case studies showcase projects that have addressed the special school design considerations and achieved the green goals established by the School Board.
