IGM at SilverStone Continues Towards ACSP Certification

Recently the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP) awarded IGM at SilverStone certification in Water Quality Management.

To achieve this certification, the course was required to demonstrate that Best Management Practices are in place to eliminate potential nutrient or pesticide contamination of water sources. The course also employs environmentally-sensitive management practices in ponds, streams, and wetlands; proper equipment and chemical storage and handling; and water quality monitoring to verify results.

Thus far Environmental Planning, Water Conservation and Wildlife and Habitat Management have been completed at the course.
