Construction best management practices (BMPs) for environmental resources
Erosion control devices and practices minimize the potential for erosion by protection exposed soil from rain, wind, and other natural and construction related processes.
Sediment control devices and practices minimize the offsite transport of sediments by stormwater and other construction related processes.
Pollution prevention and housekeeping practices minimize stormwater pollution by managing non-sediment pollutants found on construction sites, such as chemicals, trash, and hydrocarbons.
EPICs require BMPs and practices to be implemented during construction to protect biological, historical, archeological, vegetation, and water resources, and to manage hazardous materials.
