All activities in wetlands and watercourses, or within 100 feet of wetlands and watercourses, are regulated. This means that everybody needs a permit from the IWC before starting any work in these areas. Regulated activities include, but are not limited to, cutting trees or clearing the understory, grubbing, grading, paving, excavation, filling, depositing or removing of material, discharging storm water, and all septic work within 100 feet of a wetlands or watercourse requires an Inland Wetlands permit.

Please Note: Issuance of a permit from the Health Department does not release a property owner from his responsibility to obtain the required Inland Wetlands permit.

It is wise to call before stopping in if you want to talk with the Wetlands Enforcement Officer because he is often in the field doing inspections. Forms and materials can be picked up outside the office weekdays from 9-5.

Note that several departments share this fax line, so be sure to address your document clearly! Please also see the Town Calendar for possible meeting schedule exceptions.

The Commission Members are Appointed Officials with 3-year terms.
