What Are BMPs?

BMPs are scientifically based guidelines for protecting water quality and maintaining site productivity.  Proper use of BMPs will prevent erosion, sedimentation, and soil compaction.  Although non-regulatory, BMPs can also prevent violations of the US Clean Water Act, SC Pollution Control Act, and other laws and regulations that apply to forestry operations.

Some general examples of BMPs include:
