Wetlands are regulated at the local, state, and federal level. These regulations generally require approvals for activities that would impact a wetland. Impacts consist of filling, draining, or excavating within a wetland. Impacting a wetland without appropriate approvals may result in enforcement procedures.
If you have project that might impact wetlands, contact your Local Government Unit (LGU) to identify any required approvals.
If you want general wetland information access the BWSR website.
Applicants proposing impacts to aquatic resources (wetlands, lakes, stream, etc.) should submit the joint application form found on the BWSR website.
