    TIPS OF THE WEEK

    We will be periodically posting and sending out "Tips" to help you select and apply BMPs in the most effective manner.  These tips are based on my experience - Iv'e actually built them, monitored the applications, and then given a lot of thought on how to make them better.  This is my opinion only.

    This BMP Toolbox is a concept I use for teaching Been waiting 25 years for runoff to flow "through" a straw bale!! If you want effective sediment control then think - "Stokes Law".Even the best geotextiles will "blind" and plug up, then you end up ponding water or they fail. Ask yourself, does a silt fence actually "filter" sediment-laden runoff?
