Persons impacting wetlands without LGU approval are subject to enforcement by a DNR Conservation Officer. DNR Conservation Officers issue Cease and Desist Orders (CDOs) when there is probable cause that a wetland is being impacted in violation of WCA. Once a CDO has been issued, all activity within the wetland must cease until either approval from the LGU has been obtained, or compliance with a WCA Restoration/Replacement Order has been obtained. Violation of a DNR Cease and Desist Order or a WCA Restoration/Replacement Order is a misdemeanor. Local DNR Conservation Officer contact information may be found here
