Innovations in State Buffer Management


This webinar will share national trends in buffer protection and examples of state buffer protection work.  The webinar will first outline the challenges created by the complexity of buffer protection decisions and varied partnerships required to effectively implement buffer programs. Next, a presentation by the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission will share findings from a regional project exploring buffer work in New England States.  The presentation will share what the project has found about differences in how different agencies and organizations perceive buffers and need for buffer protection, how New England states have approached buffer work and key takeaways for wetland and stream managers that have emerged from the project.  The webinar will continue with a presentation on Minnesota’s new buffer law, a leading example of comprehensive buffer protections in the U.S.  The last part of the webinar will discuss how states can utilize mitigation requirements to protect buffers.  The webinar will close with an opportunity for questions.
