Erosion Control

Effective management of stormwater runoff during construction activities is critical to the protection of water resources. Both erosion control and sediment controls are necessary for effective construction site management as well as effective material management and site management practices. Protection of waterways from construction-related pollution is the ultimate objective of these practices.
Urban Drainage and Flood Control District (UDFCD) has provided information on construction best management practices (BMPs) on their website. The BMP Fact Sheets contain information on applicability, installation, maintenance, and design details with notes. The Fact Sheets are stand-alone documents that can be inserted directly into a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP).
