Man's land-disturbing hydrologic modifications activities is one of the main nonpoint source pollution categories and, management practices presented in this document apply in general to all types of hydrologic modifications. Control of nonpoint source pollution should be considered during the planning stages of a project in order to ensure that the most effective application of measures is achieved during the project implementation period. An adequately developed plan should involve preventing sediment losses; reducing peak surface runoff; and preventing the generation, accumulation, and runoff of oils, wastewaters, mineral salts, pesticides, fertilizers, solids, and organic materials from the site area.
