The types of BMPS to be implemented at these locations are paddock covers, roof runoff structures (gutter & downspouts) subsurface drain (french drain) structures for water control (dissipaters) heavy use area protection (surface treatment). waste storage (concrete manure bunkers and compost bins) filter strips (hedgerows grassed waterways. etc) and fencing.
