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.

One Small Step for Bugs

Like the inhabitants of the tragically fated Roman city of Pompeii, which fell victim to fallout from the Vesuvius volcano, benthic macroinvertebrate organisms in long-established communities along the river bottom received no warning of the oncoming catastrophe. They, like their human counterparts separated by millennia (and phylum), may have seen
