Buffer Compliance Map

These preliminary compliance estimates were conducted by soil and water conservation districts based on parcel reviews via aerial/satellite imagery. It is important to note that these estimates do not imply or represent non-compliance. Additional field-level reviews will be the next step in the inventory process.

Below we have provided a numbered map and list of all 87 Minnesota counties and their estimated percentage of preliminary compliance with the Minnesota Buffer Law.
