Stream Friendly Practices
There are many ways to protect stream health. Follow these stream friendly practices to protect water quality, improve native plant diversity, and prevent flood damage.
If your property is located along a stream then some, possibly all, of your land is in the riparian zone. Consequently, your landscaping and homesite planning choices can have significant and immediate effects on stream health and water quality. The goal is to balance the needs of your landscape with the needs of the larger ecosystem.
A little stream care goes a long way.
