Best management practices

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are control measures taken to mitigate changes to both quantity and quality of runoff caused through changes to land use. Generally, BMPs focus on increased impervious surfaces from development. BMPs are designed to reduce stormwater volume, peak flows, and/or nonpoint source pollution through evapotranspiration, infiltration, detention, and filtration or biological and chemical actions.

Best management practices can include:

  • Ditch Checks
  • Inlet Protection
  • Sediment Trap Basin
  • Silt Fence
  • Construction Entrance
  • Dust Control
  • Rock Outlet Protection
  • Compost Organic Filter Berms
  • Contour Ditch
  • Diversion Dike
  • Channel Protection
  • Cut To Fill Slope Transition
  • Slope Drains
  • Level Spreader
