This concept relies upon the use of best management practices, or BMPs. Conscientious use of BMPs includes monitoring to determine if the BMPs are being properly implemented and are achieving the desired effect. Achievement of water quality goals may require modifications in the BMPs originally selected for the forestry activities. Journal of Forestry (June). Dissmeyer, G. E. Evaluating the Effectiveness of Forestry Best Management Practices in Meeting Water Quality Goals or Standards. USDA Forest Service. Miscellaneous Publication Division of Forestry, Results of the Silviculture BMP Compliance Survey.
Forestry BMP implementation monitoring is achieved through logger contacts, courtesy check site visits, and periodic surveys. This report contains the results of the forestry BMP implementation survey. The purpose of the Tennessee forestry BMP implementation survey is to periodically ascertain and document the extent that forestry BMPs are.

Compliance with Best Management Practices (BMPs) has been surveyed twice in South Carolina.

Army Corps of Engineer’s baseline BMPs on pages 16 and 17 which are mandatory) intended to help Alabama’s forestry community maintain and protect the physical, chemical and biological integrity of waters of the state as required by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act.
Forestry best management practices (BMPs) are used to protect water quality during timber harvests and other forest management activities. BMPs ensure that the equipment used in timber harvests and silvicultural activities like forest thinnings don’t inadvertently push sediment or brush into nearby waterways or promote erosion of stream banks.
