Wetland management

Wetlands are permanently or intermittently wet areas that support natural ecosystems of plants and animals.

If you have a wetland on your property, there are different rules depending on the type of wetland (Regionally Significant Wetland and/or a natural wetland) and what activity you are proposing to do in or near the wetland.
