Description: The South Florida Water Management District (District) has prepared this
document to increase public awareness about the management of urban stormwater runoff
and how best management practices (BMPs) can be used to improve water quality. The
document provides a general overview of stormwater runoff, the sources affecting water
quality, and what can be done to improve the quality of stormwater discharges. This
document serves as an important educational tool designed to describe the various
opportunities for improving water quality in urban areas of South Florida. Web Site: https://www.sfwmd.gov/sites/default/files/documents/bmp_manual.pdf Telephone:

Description: This manual was prepared to help developers, contractors, city and township planners, engineers, architects and local citizens to control runoff* from construction sites, urban areas, and large recreational areas. The goal is to provide people with a tool which can be used to help plan development projects in a way which will maintain the integrity of lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater, and to reduce the pollutant loads to these waters. The concepts in this manual may also be used in developed areas to protect or improve water quality.
