The West Virginia Erosion and Sediment Control Best Management Practice Manual addresses erosion and sediment control
for earth disturbing activities associated with construction. The manual is designed to assist construction site
developers, engineers, designers, and contractors in identifying and implementing the most appropriate best
management practices for construction activities.
The purpose of this manual is to provide standardized and comprehensive erosion and sediment control management
practices for implementation on construction projects throughout West Virginia. It is intended that this manual be
used as guidance for developing sediment control plans for the West Virginia/National Pollution Discharge
Elimination System General Water Pollution Control Permit for Stormwater Associated with Construction Activities.
However, the use of other best management practices manuals may also be acceptable. The use of this manual
is not a
regulatory requirement. The goal is to reduce the water quality impacts of land-disturbing activities
design and implementation of effective erosion prevention and sediment control.
