Buffers

Buffers are located by permanent or intermittent streams, lakes, ponds, and wetlands. They are used to intercept sediment, nutrients, pesticides, and other materials in surface run off. They reduce nutrients and other pollutants in shallow subsurface water flow.

Woody vegetation in buffers provides food and cover for wildlife, helps keep water temperatures low and increase the resistance of stream banks and shoreline erosion. Buffers are used with other BMP practices as part of a conservation management system. Buffers are also used for aesthetics and benefit wildlife.

All buffers are designed site-specific. Let Klein's provide a solution to your buffer needs:
