Through Watershed Alliance of York funding is available for riparian forest buffer implementation within York County. Funding can be used for multifunctional or traditional riparian forest buffer plantings. WAY encourages the widest buffer possible while considering landowner interest and other limiting factors - to provide flexibility, all riparian buffers must be at least 35 feet in width. WAY encourages 50 feet in width, or more, as best conservation practice.
