It provides needed nutrients to the soil and grass. The CWA used the term in describing the areawide waste treatment planning program  and in procedures for controlling toxic pollutants associated with industrial discharges.
Dumping automotive fluids into storm drains has the same result as dumping the materials directly into a waterbody. If necessary, you may need to conduct activities that are not compatible with your facility for example, commercial vehicle washing if you don't have a wash rack, or other means to contain, collect, and properly dispose of vehicle washing wastewater at an offsite commercial facility.
Implementing BMPs in this order is the most cost effective and does the best job of protecting stormwater quality. Using source control BMPs to eliminate pollutant sources prior to polluting stormwater runoff should be your next option.
Performance standards are likely to be more efficient in economic terms in the long run because they provide incentives for mollusc farmers to optimize their technology and processes, but they may be more expensive to comply with and enforce because they require more extensive monitoring and documentation of environmental and ecological parameters in order to document Page 36 Share Cite Suggested Citation:"2 Best Management Practices and Performance Standards.
Agriculture Agricultural stormwater pollution can be effectively managed considering the following management strategies: Revegetation: Vegetating riparian areas along waterways can be helpful. Forestry Improperly managed logging operations can result and erosion and sedimentation.
Other practitioners prefer to use the term Stormwater control measure, due to the varied definitions of the term "BMP" and its use in non-stormwater practice. Acid drainage from mining activities requires even more complex BMPs to prevent acids and associated toxic pollutants from harming surface waters.
