A new Danish law on buffer strips along all lakes and streams in the country side became effective on 1 September this year. This has given Denmark its most ambitious environmental legislation for many years.

The Danish government has therefore passed a law introducing 10-metre wide buffer strips of non-cultivated land along all lakes and watercourses in the country side toiling 50.000 hectares. The law, which took effect on 1 September 2012, means that Denmark takes a giant step on the path towards a cleaner environment.

As well as reducing the negative effects of pesticides in the water environment, the buffer strips also reduce the release of nitrogen and phosphorus and create more continuous natural areas.
