Waterways and Wetlands Management Permit

The Chapter 105 program regulates work in and around streams, wetlands and other water bodies with a focus on avoiding or minimizing impacts on water quality, flooding frequency and riparian habitats. Under a Delegation Agreement, the District administers DEP General Permits for various types of work in waterways, including wetlands and stream crossings, streambank stabilization, boat ramp and dock installation, intake and outfall structures and utility line crossings. District staff inspect permitted sites, investigate complaints and provide regulatory and permitting assistance.
