Course Description

Course ID: 

The BMP Pocket Guide will assist you in making informed decisions when selecting BMP's that provide the best erosion and sediment control (ESC) for your project. It will help you ask yourself and others the right questions that may impact overall BMP performance.

Every construction project has unique conditions that demand appropriate BMP selection. In addition, your informed discussions with suppliers and service vendors should ensure you get the appropriate BMP product or service for your site.

This guide is meant to supplement existing design manuals, and is not a replacement for them. BMP considerations, technical drawings, and installation options in this guide are a compilation of several state agency guidance manuals that have been reviewed to reflect the most current information.

The guide is designed to be readable in the field, and is printed on water-resistant, heavy duty paper. Pocket Guides will be shipped to the billing address specified, unless a shipping address is entered in the Order Comments field. Please contact us if you have questions:, or (425) 270-3274

** If you wish to purchase 5 or more booklets, please contact us for a bulk discount **


Intended Audience: 

Contractors, agency/municipal employees, engineers, consultants and anyone else who needs a portable reference guide for erosion and sediment control BMP's
