Best Management Practices for the Protection of Water Resources - Spanish
Rookery Bay NERR
The Florida Friendly Best Management Practices for Protection of Water Quality by the Green Industries program, commonly known as the “Green Industries Best Management Practices” was developed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the Department of Community Affairs, the water management districts, University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the green industries.
It provides professionals with knowledge, skills and tools to minimize the impacts of nonpoint sources pollution related to landscaping design and maintenance practices. The program promotes careful consideration of plant selection, irrigation, maintenance, fertilization and pesticide application that does not compromise Florida’s environment. Stormwater management, including managing the location and design of urban green spaces is also covered.
