Shoreland Best Management Practices

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are actions you can take to reduce your impact on the environment.  BMPs have been described for agriculture, forest management, and construction.

 This fact sheet describes BMPs you can adopt on your shoreland property to help protect and preserve water quality.  In many cases, the best management for shorelands may be retaining the natural characteristics of your property.  Print the fact sheet and check off the practices that you adopt and measure your success as a shoreland steward.
