Saturated Buffers in Northwest Ohio:
Reducing Drainage Water Volume for Improved Water Quality
A saturated buffer is an innovative conservation practice with positive impacts on downstream water quality.

As a result, Ohio researchers are addressing the benefits, costs, and other related issues of this practice within the topography and soil characteristics of northwest Ohio.
