Instream BMPs are designed to provide sediment trapping for projects that must take place within the waterway. Projects that cross or otherwise work within the waterway should strive to limit the amount of work that occurs within the waterflow line.
Soil Bioengineering BMPs are the ideal measures for use in streambanks and on other upland slopes. Bioengineering uses vegetative materials to provide structural support to banks and flow reduction across banks.
Reinforced Soil Retaining Systems and Gabions
Erosion control best management practices are required during all ground disturbing activity until permanent site ground covers are in place.
Stormwater control is a vital element to prevent erosion.
Perimeter Control BMPs are the last protection before sediment enters the roadway, storm drains, or adjacent properties. Perimeter control BMPs can be the most visible and most vandalized BMPs used on a site of ground disturbance.
Site Entry BMPs control accesses to and from a site of ground disturbance can go a long way to controlling mitigation of sediments of the worksite.
A serious security vulnerability known as "Heartbleed" was recently discovered in OpenSSL, a popular software library commonly used by many websites on the internet to encrypt communication between a user's computer and a web server.
PortlandOregon.gov is NOT affected by this vulnerability as it does not use the OpenSSL software library. Please rest assured we are dedicated to protecting your security on this website.
