Under the new regulations, buffer zones 15 metres wide must be maintained next to all watercourses and wetlands.

The regulations also require the planting of 10-metre-wide grassed headlands at the end of all row of cropland that ends within 200 metres of a watercourse or wetland.

Copies of the buffer zone fact sheet will be available at Access PEI service centres in the near future.
