photo of erosion prevention practice

When stormwater drains off a construction site, it carries sediment and other pollutants that harm lakes, streams and wetlands. According to the 1996 National Water Quality Inventory, stormwater runoff is a leading source of water pollution. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 20 to 150 tons of soil per acre are lost every year to stormwater runoff from construction sites.

This wiki contains dozens of images related to construction stormwater. We have divided those into photos related to erosion prevention and sediment control. This page contains links to those two subcategories where photos of construction stormwater best management practices can be found.
