What’s in a name? Is Low Impact Design the same as Green Infrastructure? What’s the difference between Water Sensitive Urban Design and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems? There are many terms used around the world for managing stormwater by working with the natural landform and focusing on small, frequent rainfall events. This presentation will briefly describe the central theme to each of these approaches and suggest a terminology to encompass all of them.
