Low Impact Parcel (LIP) Credit

Low impact parcels are significantly large properties which have very little impervious area. In general, these parcels have very little negative downstream impact, because they do not generate as much stormwater runoff as other areas of similar size and most of the property is undeveloped. In order to qualify for the LIP credit, the parcel must satisfy both of the following requirements:

  • The parcel must be at least 6 acres in size.
  • The parcel must have less than 2.3% of impervious coverage. Impervious coverage is measured as the total amount of impervious surface area (e.g. buildings, accessory structures, driveways, walkways, patios, swimming pools, gravel areas, etc.) divided by the total parcel area.
