Buffer Law

The Minnesota Buffer Law was signed into law in 2015. The law states that perennial vegetation is to be implemented along our public waters and public ditches. 

Public Waters require a 50 foot buffer to be implemented by November 1st, 2017.

Public Ditches require a 16.5 foot buffer to be implemented by November 1st, 2018.

The DNR has created the buffer protection map that can viewed here
