Buffer Strip Law

Project Info

Project Description

In 2015, Governor Dayton passed the Buffer Law designating an estimated 110,000 acres of land for water quality buffer strips statewide. Conservation buffers are strips of perennial vegetation adjacent to a public water body or drainage ditch. Benefits that conservation buffers provide are protecting water resources by filtering out nutrients and sediment, thereby improving water quality, enhancing fish and wildlife habitat, and beautifying the landscape. Please click on the buffer guideline to help guide the planning and design of your buffer. For more information on the Buffer Law, go to www.dnr.state.mn.us/buffers/index.html then click on the Buffer map link.
