A Win for Water: Greenville County Council Strengthens Riparian Buffers

On January 2, 2024, in a vote of 11:1, Greenville County Council passed a text amendment to significantly strengthen protections for riparian buffers in Greenville County. The amendment requires a minimum 50’ buffer on all classes of streams and Waters of the State in the County and a minimum buffer of 100’ on Waters of the State features with a drainage area of 50 ac. or more, which is in line with County Staff recommendations.

Read our report of the decision and learn more about buffers here!
