Getting to 2% – Case Studies in Impervious Cover Disconnection

November 14, 2019

Presented By Victor Benni, Town of East Lyme and Michael Dietz, UConn CLEAR

We’ll highlight disconnection strategies from East Lyme and the UConn Storrs Campus. Vic Benni from East Lyme will share his method (and spreadsheet) for calculating total Directly Connected Impervious Area (DCIA) and describe some of the Low Impact Development (LID) installations they have used to get to the 2% disconnection goal. Then, Mike Dietz will cover how he tracks impervious cover at UConn and highlight some of the LID practices treating stormwater runoff in Storrs.
