Do I have wetlands on my property?

Inland wetlands are areas where water is at or just below the surface of the ground. Although these wetlands can appear dry during some seasons, they contain enough water to support certain plants and soils. While some maps may show wetlands, their accuracy is limited. Conservation Department staff are trained to identify these wetlands.

Additionally, a wetland scientist can tell you if your property contains wetlands. All wetland delineations are subject to Conservation Commission review and approval.
