DescriptionTo deal with nonpoint sources of pollution, such as stream sediment produced by erosion from forest management operations, regulations require land managers to reduce onsite erosion to keep the amount of sediment discharged from each project area within acceptable limits. Activities developed to meet these regulations are sometimes referred to as best management practices (BMPs). BMPs are designed to reduce pollutant discharge from a single project but may not solve the larger problem concerning the cumulative effect of multiple projects
