Program compensates landowners for buffers to protect waterways
WILLMAR -- Landowners in Kandiyohi County now have a conservation program to compensate them for protecting the waterways.
Reinvest in Minnesota buffers are established through a perpetual easement purchased from the landowner and funded by the Clean Water Fund and Outdoor Heritage Fund.
The native vegetation buffers adjacent to ditches, lakes and streams allow runoff to be absorbed and filtered before it enters public waters.
