Abstract:
Riparian buffers, or wide strips of vegetation along stream and river banks, are effective filters in keeping pollutants from reaching the water. They also control erosion and attract wildlife. One of the most aggressive water pollution plans is a state-mandated one requiring retention of 50-foot-wide buffers on all Neuse River Basin streams.

Abstract:
Mandatory buffer zones are a way to protect water quality. Effective August 2000, 30-foot buffers must be established on all navigable waterways in twenty coastal counties. Most development is also banned in the buffer zone. Buffer zones filter nutrients, bacteria, and other pollutants from stormwater runoff, thereby reducing the pollutant flow into waterways. The Coastal Resources Commission adopted the buffer zone rule after two years of discussion on ways to protect water quality.
