“Scientific studies indicate that a stream should have approximately 30 metres of undisturbed vegetation buffers on each side to help ensure the stream system remains healthy,” continued Hofer. “The City currently ensures that these buffers remain when new development is proposed around creeks, but some of the older parts of our community were built before such regulations were in place.
