Best Management Practices -
Officials from the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition, Inc conducted extensive research into best management practices and developed a number of BMP's for guidance to their constituents. The HRWC very graciously shared the results of their work with the Tallulah River Watershed Council and authorized the TRWC to use and adapt this work to guide TRWC constituents. That work, the TRWC BMPs has been completed and is presented in this section. The relevant portions have also been reproduced in the other Stewardship pages (Residents, Commercial Operations and Agriculture) as appropriate. Following are the adapted BMPs by category. Each BMP may be accessed by pressing the button containing its name.
These BMPs are very well researched and supported by citations for other sources of information. In the other sections of the Stewardship tab, these BMPs are presented with other best management practices that residents, business operators and farming operations can deploy to protect our watershed top to bottom.
