Land Use Change Best Management Practices (BMPs) improve water quality by returning developed areas to a more natural environment.
Impervious area removal identifies surfaces – abandoned roadways, concrete ditches and raised concrete medians – that can be replaced with grass and trees. Removing impervious surfaces decreases stormwater runoff by letting rainwater infiltrate the soil, which removes pollutants, recharges groundwater and reduces pollution entering local streams.
