Our actions can sustain healthy, vibrant natural riparian areas for all to enjoy now and in the future. A Riparian Grant is a deed from the State of New Jersey for the sale of its formerly flowed tidelands. Obtaining a riparian grant is appropriate if any portion of the upland of a property was, at one time, flowed by the mean high tide.

The term riparian comes from the Latin word ripa, 'river bank'; though, technically it only refers to areas adjacent to flowing bodies of water such as rivers, streams, sloughs, and r, the terms riparian forest and riparian zone have come to include areas adjacent to non-flowing bodies of water such as ponds, lakes, playas and reservoirs.

This chapter introduces riverine riparia, places riparian systems in a landscape context, and presents the environmental settings in which riparia occur. Riparian systems are transitional semiterrestrial areas regularly influenced by fresh water, usually extending from the edges of water bodies to the edges of upland communities.

Why focus on riparian protection and recovery. Riparian ecosystems perform important functions that affect salmon and other aquatic and terrestrial wildlife.

Riparian forests filter sediment and pollutants from stormwater runoff that would otherwise enter the stream system. The forest also reduces erosion – the roots hold soil in place, and the forest reduces flooding.

Like the object of Riparian, the Ohio River, the not-river in Pauletta’s poem made way for “Queen Ann’s Lace and honeysuckle, the flowers of places unclaimed,” and with this, the romance and mystery so inextricably tied to the allure of rivers.

Riparian areas—transitional zones between the aquatic environments of streams, rivers, and lakes and the terrestrial environments on and alongside their banks—are special places. They provide almost two hundred thousand miles of connections. Riparian vegetation also facilitates the removal of suspended sediments, along with their nutrient contents, from overland flow, whether from the uplands or from the adjacent river.

Sediments and sediment-bound pollutants carried in surface runoff are effectively deposited in mature riparian forests and in streamside grasses.

Riparian vegetation is an essential component of river systems and controls fluvial functioning (i.e. morphodynamics, nutrient fluxes, floods, etc.). Plants within river corridors reciprocally interact with fluvial processes, for example influencing hydraulic conditions and erosion, transport and deposition of sediments.

Riparian forests have been severely damaged or removed for many human uses, including agriculture, timber harvesting, development, and recreation. losing these buffers has negatively affected wildlife habitat and water quality throughout the state.
