WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors have nearly finished revisions to their riparian buffer ordinance, which proponents say will protect stream health and opponents say will infringe on property owners' rights. Two public hearings soon will be scheduled to formally accept residents' and business owners' input. Several people have already offered support and complaints in recent weeks at supervisors' meetings. If enacted, the ordinance would establish 75 feet of protected area on stream banks after the land is submitted for development.
