The SWPPP requirements mention Best Management Practices (BMPs), what are BMPs?

BMPs are practices or structures designed to reduce the quantities of pollutants that enter the storm sewer system or nearby lakes and creeks.  Practices such as employee training, spill prevention and response, and regular inspections are just a few examples of BMPs.  Structural BMPs could include secondary containment, stormwater detention basins, stormwater retention basins, grass swales, and more.

For a list of BMPs specific to your industry, please see the Industry Fact Sheets page.
