A watershed can experience extra stresses due to the activities of urbanisation such as new land developments. This brief Forum paper raises two matters for discussion concerning best management prectices (BMPs) in this area: firstly, that it would be beneficial to have more continuous monitoring programs put in place to test and document the effectiveness of various BMPs in various regions; and secondly, that maintenance work must be given priority to ensure that all installed BMPs function well as they are supposed to be.
