Wetland permit

Wetland Permit Application

What permit shall I use and when should I file it?The Commission meets twice a month on the first and third Thursdays of the month. All applications for a permit must be submitted to the Commission two weeks before the hearing so that a legal notice can be placed in the newspaper, to advertise this public hearing. The permit application forms are found on line at the DEP website

For simple projects use WPA form 1:  Request for Determination of Applicability  involving installation of sheds, removal of a few trees or minor landscaping within 100 feet of a wetland

For small projects use WPA Form 4:  Abbreviated Notice of Intent such as single family house construction, major landscaping, or wall installation.

For more major projects use WPA Form 3:  Notice of Intent. You can find the Instructions Here .  Please call for our local abutters notice form as well as to receive an abutters list, which we will provide. If you are required to file a stormwater report you must also submit the Stormwater Report Check List

For Wetland Delineation, use WPA Form 4A:  Abbreviated Notice of Resource Area Delineation

And Don't forget to use WPA Form 8A: Request for a Certificate of Compliance when a project has been completed.

If you have any questions on what forms to use, please call the office and ask for assistance. Unfortunately these are state forms and can be complicated, so please do not hesitate to ask for help, that’s what we are here for!
