Wetlands are valuable
What is a Wetland?
  • Areas neither dry land nor open water

  • Formed and sustained by the influence of water on land

Are wetlands really wet?
  • In some wetlands, the water is at ground level and saturated most of the time

  • Some wetlands have water above ground for long periods of time

  • Many, such as cypress domes are dry for long periods and sometimes contain several feet of water

You may need to obtain a permit from DEP, and authorization from DEP to use the State's submerged lands.
