Abstract: The Department of Defense has been tasked by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13693, “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade,” to conserve and protect water resources through increased efficiency, reuse, and management. As a result, sustainable stormwater management strategies are being incorporated throughout the military’s built environment to manage stormwater in ways that work with natural hydrologic systems. Collectively, those strategies are called Low Impact Development (LID). Incorporating LID technologies, or LID BMPs, in designated historic districts requires advanced planning, site analysis, compliance with federal regulations, and coordination between diverse stakeholders. This field guide explains the complex interaction between regulatory requirements and the physical environment to assist cultural resource managers in coordinating with all stakeholders to successfully plan and implement sustainable stormwater management systems.
