Dredge and Fill/Wetlands

Problem: Dredge and fill activities are subject to
contradictory standards and diverse agency jurisdictional

DER, DNR, WMDs, RPCs and local governments consider, permit
or make recommendations that impact wetlands use.
DER issues dredge and fill permits in waters of the state
and jurisdictional wetlands. WMDs issue surface water
management permits and consider isolated wetlands. RPC
issue recommendations for wetlands use in DRI projects.
DNR considers impacts on vegetation and submerged grasses
when deciding to lease or allow the use of sovereign
submerged lands, and in doing so conducts its own
biological assessment.
Conflicts arise in three areas: 1) jurisdiction,
2) standards for approval and 3) mitigation requirements.
