Stream Buffers 101

Stream buffers are natural areas adjacent to streams and waterways that remain free of ­devel­opment, con­struction, or other alterations and play an important role in maintaining predevelopment water quality. The riparian vegetation stabilizes stream channels, provides terrestrial and aquatic habitat, slows runoff rates, reduces runoff volume, and filters development runoff.

Editor’s Comments: Looking Out to Sea

“Palau is a small place. If the boat sinks, we sink with it. We will be the first ones under water.”

Those words were part of a speech by Noah Idechong, the senior advisor to the Palau Minister of Natural Resources, Environment, and Tourism, last month in Honolulu, HI. He was
