BMP Field Tour Series

In the summer of 2018, the Pike County Conservation District held a bus tour of several local sites that showed what Best Management Practices (BMPs) for storm water. During this tour, Senior Resource Conservationist, Ellen Enslin CPESC, showed the tour group how the BMP worked and how they could implement the practice in their own neighborhood. Below is the video series sharing the information shared on the bus tour, so even if you couldn’t attend you can still effectively manage stormwater.

 

Stormwater BMPs Field Tour – Part 1

Overview

Properly managing stormwater can help to prevent pollution, flooding and erosion. This brief overview of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) focuses on the primary types of structures, techniques and actions that can minimize the adverse effects of increased stormwater runoff by controlling the rate of water flow, the quantity that is absorbed into the soil, and the resulting water quality.

The Pike County Conservation District produced this video series about stormwater best management practices with support from a PA DEP Environmental Education Grant.

Proactive Project Planning

Properly managing stormwater can help to prevent water pollution, flooding and erosion. This can be accomplished by implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs), which are actions, structures and techniques that minimize the adverse effects of increased runoff.

A variety of Best Management Practices exist to help control the rate of water flow, the quantity that is absorbed into the soil, and the resulting water quality.
