Compendium of Best Management Practices for Environmental Compliance and Stewardship at Highway Transportation Maintenance Facilities

This report documents and presents the results of a study of environmental best management practices performed at highway maintenance facilities. Information about best management practices (BMPs) was obtained through surveys and interviews with agency personnel and a literature review. Participants self-selected BMPs performed at their maintenance facilities for a range of practices, such as vehicle washing, hazardous waste management, and animal carcass management. The research team then applied the criteria of cost savings, time savings, and effectiveness at meeting regulatory obligations and preventing pollution to these BMPs, and compared the results in order to identify BMPs. The results were compiled into the BMP Compendium to be used as a resource by highway transportation maintenance managers.
