The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission in each municipality is responsible for reviewing applications for development that may impact a wetland or watercourse.  The purpose of the Commission's regulations is to minimize or prevent disturbance and pollution of each town's inland wetlands and watercourses, including its bogs, swamps, and marshes, as well as its lakes, ponds, rivers and streams.

Please contact the office before undertaking any activity in or within 100 feet of a wetland or watercourse - even if you believe your activity falls under the agricultural exemption. 

With the agent now able to approve small projects, this is often a painless process which will keep your project on-track.
