Torrington's LID Parking Lot Gets A New Interpretive Sign
NCD received grant funding to design, manufacture and install an interpretive sign that explains how the porous paver system functions like a giant storwmater filter at the City of Torrington's first Low Impact Development (LID) municipal parking lot.
This parking lot was previously the site of a small, vacant dirt lot that regularly shed sediment-laden stormwater into the Naugatuck River. Reinforced, porous paving blocks over a specially prepared base now filter and clean stormwater before it flows through the ground toward the river, thus helping to improve water quality.
