Clean runoff starts with you!

This BMP Field Guide will take you through the erosion prevention and sediment control process for construction sites. It also provides BMPs for construction site materials and wastes and BMPs for maintenance, fueling and cleaning activities. The guide starts out with sections on pre-project planning and operational activities. It then provides practical guidance for erosion prevention and sediment control by starting at the top of the hill, above the project site, and proceeding down the slope through the bare soil areas, onsite ditches and channels, traps and basins, and on down to the storm drain inlets and the waterways below the site.
