A companion piece for The City of Casper Erosion and Sediment Control Best Management Practices Manual is the Revegetation Guidelines Handbook. The handbook provides a basis for design, which consultants and developers may use when designing stormwater plans, erosion prevention measures, and other uses related to reclaiming disturbed soils. The purpose of the handbook is to provide guidance on materials and methods that enhance the appearance of Casper; achieve vegetation stands that are durable and will require minimal maintenance in the future; facilitate economies for maintenance; minimize wind and water erosion; and provide for uniformity of construction.
