Wetland Delineations

The Agency will determine wetland jurisdiction or confirm the boundary of agency-jurisdictional wetlands delineated by an ecological consultant when new land use and development is proposed in proximity to known or suspected wetlands. If you are not proposing new land use or development, you may consult this list of wetland delineation/ ecological consultants.
