Conservation Buffers

For more information on how the Dodge Soil and Water Conservation plans to monitor and track the Minnesota Buffer Law compliance in Dodge County, see the Dodge SWCD Buffer Law Monitoring and Tracking Plan.

Conservation buffers have been in the news lately.  Conservation buffers are strips or other areas with trees or grass that help control pollutants, erosion, or other environmental concerns.  Conservation buffers improve water quality and provide wildlife habitat by:

  • Slowing water runoff
  • Trapping sediment, fertilizers, pesticides, and dust
  • Protect wildlife and livestock from harsh weather
  • Reduce winds, noise and odors
  • Provide food, nesting cover and shelter for many wildlife species
  • Increase privacy and beautify the countryside

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released the Buffer Law Maps.  You can view the maps on the Minnesota DNR Buffer Law Page: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/buffers/index.html
