The riparian area is a band of dense, native vegetation along a body of water. This zone can be identified by high soil moisture, frequent flooding, and the unique collection of plants and animals found there.

Low Impact Development (LID) is a land planning and design approach for managing stormwater runoff as close to its source as possible. LID principles complement, and sometimes replace, traditional stormwater management systems, which historically emphasized quickly moving stormwater off-site with curbs, pipes, and culverts.
