Best Management Practices (BMPs) For Highway and Earthwork Construction Under the PA DEP Fill Policy and General Permit Program

This document presents Best Management Practices (BMPs) used in earthwork and highway construction projects in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has state-specific protocols for a number of important construction practices involving processing and placement of materials, and determining whether or not materials are considered clean fill or waste. Those involved in earthwork and highway construction in Pennsylvania are advised to become familiar with Pennsylvania protocols and beneficial reuse of materials such as pavement millings/RAP, slag and other materials which can be safely reused and recycled so long as the protocols are followed. 
For more information on construction practices and use of materials, the Pennsylvania Asphalt Pavement Association (PAPA) provides technical assistance through the Association's office.
