Stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are landscape tools aimed to mimic the natural hydrology of an area, allowing water to soak into the soil as much as possible instead of run off. The design of these BMPs is site-specific and most are intended to be small scale projects that can be easily incorporated into anew or existing yard, parking lot or landscape.
In thre dop-down menu you can find a partial list of stormwater BMPs that are appropriate for the Dickinson Bayou watershed and the Texas Gulf Coast.
EPA Barrier Buster Factsheet Series provides information about Low Impact Development Stormwater BMPs.
