Best Management Practices for Golf Course Water Use
The best management practices for golf course water use (BMPs) are intended to promote water conservation, preserve or improve water quality and protect water resources. These BMPs were developed by a work group consisting of superintendents, environmental regulators, and specialists from local engineering, scientific, and irrigation consulting groups. They were developed for the use of golf course planners, architects, developers, and local regulators who may need assistance and guidance in developing new golf courses, or making changes to existing golf courses, under the regulatory and environmental constraints that exist in the State of Connecticut.
