Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this document is to provide a conceptual framework for a field demonstration of multi-functional, vegetated riparian buffers, which would be placed on reservoir shorelines and riverine tributaries to lakes and reservoirs operated by the United States (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Riparian buffers will not only provide traditional control of sediment, nutrients, and other chemicals in runoff entering the reservoir, but also potentially provide habitat for federally listed and “at-risk” birds and other sensitive species. The study focuses on applications in the southwestern U.S., which is managed by the USACE South Pacific Division (SPD).
