In June of 2015, Governor Dayton signed into law a new buffer initiative aimed at enhancing protection of Minnesota’s waters. The buffer initiative will help protect the state’s water resources from erosion and runoff pollution by establishing roughly 110,000 acres of buffer along waterways.
Landowners can submit a Parcel Specific Compliance Plan for an extension of the deadline on installation of buffers on public waters. The plan needs to be submitted on the required form to the SWCD on or before November 1, 2017. Contact Matt Anderson at meeker SWCD for more information.
