Best Management Practices
Managing and protecting natural resources
Throughout Montana, forest lands act as collectors of pure water. Protecting this source of pure water is the responsibility of both forest landowners and loggers.
Best Management Practices (BMPs) are guidelines used to direct forest activities and protect water quality. These guidelines are practical actions that landowners, forest managers and loggers can take to limit non-point pollution of water resources. The implementation and effectiveness of these BMPs are evaluated every two years by interdisciplinary BMP audit teams. A copy of this Biennial BMP audit report is available from the MLA or the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation.
