 The Erosion and Sediment Control Program was set up to improve and protect Georgia's urban soil and water resources by reducing the amount of erosion from urban development sites.  The program does this through the use of best management practices (BMPs) as called for in the soil and water conservation districts law and delivered through soil and water conservation districts.

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) supports locally led soil and water conservation districts through education, technical, financial and planning assistance and through program oversight.

Information about the GSWCC is available at http://gaswcc.georgia.gov or by calling (706) 552-4470.
