dc.description.abstractRiparian areas function as a buffer between the upland and the aquatic systems. This area is unique in its structure and the services it provides intercepting non-point source (NPS) pollution from the upland. In some cases additional buffer width may be required or sought. Riparian buffer strips are a beneficial management practice (BMP) eligible for cost-shared funding under government programs. However, little information is available to assist landowners in appropriate location or design considerations. This project aims to create a riparian buffer design tool to be utilized on lotic (flowing water) systems in cropland settings. This tool will consist of a flow chart and accompanying key. The flow chart along with air photographs, soils maps and discussions with the landowner will help to determine where on the landscape a buffer should be located. The final product will include case studies and guiding documents for technical staff to utilize when assisting landowners with their riparian buffer strips.en_US
