CT LID Regulations Inventory

There are many ways to incorporate innovative stormwater management strategies and low impact development (LID) into local town regulations. This section allows you to explore some Connecticut town and city regulations that have introduced innovative solutions to stormwater management. The list of regulations is not meant to be exhaustive. Alternatively, it is meant to help stimulate ideas on how your town can adopt lower-impact practices that protect water resources.

CT Towns with Featured Regulations

Disclaimer: The regulations featured on this site are examples only, not recommendations. These examples are not meant to provide legal guidance and no town should update a regulation without first consulting the town attorney. Each town should also consider their own natural resources and development strategies when updating town regulations, and no excerpt on this website should be considered without first referring to the whole text of the regulation.

Thank you to the towns and planners who have contributed their regulations to this website.
