Healthy riparian areas play a critical role in purifying our water through filtering and reducing surface water runoff from surrounding uplands and trapping sediment and associated pollutants such as nutrients, pesticides and bacteria. They also contribute to water storage, which helps mediate the effects of both floods and drought.
