Upland BMPs

Sediment basins are constructed on or near agriculture land to collect and store silt, sand, gravel, agricultural waste solids, and other debris. This prevents undesirable deposition to the riparian area and streams.

Terraces are designed to slow run-off from agricultural lands. The terracing of slopes redirects run-off and increases contact time with the upland soil, thereby increasing infiltration and reducing sedimentation of streams.

Grassed waterways are natural or constructed channels that have established vegetation for the stable conveyance of runoff. Grassed waterways are mainly used as part of a resource management system to convey runoff from terraces or other water concentrations without causing erosion or flooding and improve water quality.

Pasture and hayland planting establishes native and introduced forage species and is used to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, and increase carbon sequestration by providing a permanent cover. Pasture and hayland planting also can improve or maintain livestock nutrition and/or health.
