The Simple Beauty of Buffers

Record #:
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.
