One of the largest concerns from land disruption due to construction is stormwater erosion. Sediment carries nutrients and pollutants that degrade water resources and harm aquatic wildlife. Both permanent and temporary erosion control Best Management Practices (BMPs) can significantly decrease the amount of sediment that is carried into lakes, streams and rivers by stormwater runoff. This helps lessen negative impacts to local water resources and natural areas.
