Know before you buy or buildExplore your options

If wetlands are present on a property, there are options available to you:

  • Enjoy and explore your wetlands and avoid building on them or otherwise disturbing them. Learn about the important functions and values they provide.
  • Restore degraded wetlands or enhance them.
  • If wetlands can’t be avoided, read about the necessary permitting and environmental review process. State and federal (and sometimes local) permits are required for activities that will have an impact on wetlands.
