Wetland Regulation

Permitting Resources

Applicants who propose to alter aquatic resources must go through mitigation sequencing - avoiding and minimizing impacts - before determining whether compensatory mitigation is appropriate, and a permit is required. Compensatory mitigation involves restoring (re-establishing, rehabilitating), creating (establishing), enhancing, or preserving aquatic resources to replace those lost or degraded through permitted activities. The Governor's Office for Regulatory Innovation and Assistance and specific agencies can help you determine if your project may affect an aquatic resource and require a permit.
