Applying Best Management Practices on Florida's Forestlands
Abstract:In 1976 Florida's Department of Environmental Regulation appointed a Technical Advisory Committee to identify best management practices (BMP's) to prevent nonpoint pollution from forest management activities. The committee has completed an assessment of silviculture-related sediment production, which pointed to access roads as the most serious potential pollution hazard, and has developed a systematic technique of rating inherent site sensitivity to forest management activities. A public education program utilizing federal, state, and industrial resources and stressing voluntary compliance, is envisioned as the most effective means of attaining substantial compliance with the program.
