Rainfall is considered a major input in designing stormwater management measures, especially for any low-impact development (LID) control design. With the impact of climate change, rainfall frequency and its patterns are changing continuously. Quantification of these changes and their impact on the performance of LID design becomes crucial. This paper presents a methodology to quantify the change in rainfall patterns using the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 5 (CMIP5) climate model and to select the most feasible LID for a catchment with haphazard development. Interconnected decentralization-based LID controls are evaluated with the objective of emulating a pre-urbanized scenario. The overall analyses indicated that green roof (GR) followed by infiltration trenches (IT), rooftop disconnection (RTD), and permeable pavement (PP) showed better performance. Furthermore, a combination of IT, PP, and RTD accomplishes better efficiency for extreme rainfall events. Implementation of the most feasible combination will provide the additional benefit of water recycle and reuse. © 2023 IAHS.
