What are the stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)?
Best Management Practices (BMPs) can be defined as practices, schedules of activities, maintenance procedures, and structural or other management decisions that have been found to be the most effective and practical means to prevent or reduce the discharge of pollutants into the environment.

BMPs can be structural including wet and dry detention ponds, bioretension areas, oil or water separators and constructed wetlands. Or they can be non-structural, such as pollution prevention programs and public education.
