Zumbro Watershed Buffer Summit, March 24, 6:30 pm-8:00 pm in Mazeppa
Summary: We all know that perennial vegetated buffers are designed to capture farm field runoff and to keep soil and farm fertilizers out of streams, rivers, and other public waterways. But almost a year after the State of Minnesota passed a new Buffer Rule, many landowners still have questions about what that law will mean for them and for clean water in Minnesota.
If you’ve got questions about buffers, we’ve got answers at the Zumbro Watershed Buffer Summit, Thursday, March 24, 6:30-8:00 pm at the Mazeppa Community Center, 121 Maple Street, Mazeppa, Minnesota.
Tom Gile, Buffer and Soil Loss Coordinator for the Minnesota Board of Soil and Water Resources (BWSR) will give a short presentation on the new law and how it will operate. Following that presentation, representatives from BWSR, the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), and several Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) will answer your questions about this proven conservation practice.
