Do I need a permit to fill a low spot on my property?

No permit is required to fill a low spot unless it is a wetland. Wetlands are designated by wetland or soils scientists based on specific criteria including vegetation, soils, and hydrology. In many cases, a wetland does not contain standing water. Both State and Town regulations require a permit for filling of wetland areas. For additional information, including a list of soil/wetland scientists, please contact the Planning Director.
