How do I find out if wetlands exist on my property?
You may contact the Conservation Department to determine if there are any wetlands on your property. Conservation staff can research if there was a previous filing for the property that could offer wetlands information and conduct a site visit. If there are resource areas located on your property and you need to have the wetland boundaries identified for a project, you must retain a Professional Wetland Scientist (PWS) to perform a wetland delineation.
