Ask Mr. BMP
Cities, towns, and communities across the country spend millions -- in some cases, billions -- of dollars to protect water quality and remain compliant with state and federal regulations. One important strategy for doing that is use of BMPs -- Best Management Practices -- which include myriad techniques (both gray and green) for dealing with stormwater runoff and reducing the pollutants entering our nation's waters. As the use of BMPs grows, so too do the questions surrounding them. Our blog, "Ask Mr. BMP," will provide a forum for discussing questions, strategies, and best practices for stormwater BMPs.
