Best Management Practices for Water Quality While Harvesting Forest Products

The CT DEEP published a booklet that will assist certified forest practitioners, private landowners, and municipal officials towards a better understanding of the best management practices (BMPs) associated with the harvest of forest products. BMPs for water quality are the minimum standards to be taken to ensure water quality. 

Following is the 2012 electronic version of this publication:
