to Summary


The purpose of the permits is to protect and preserve submerged lands under tidal and freshwaters and wetlands, both salt and fresh water, from unregulated alteration that would adversely affect the natural ability of wetlands to absorb flood waters, treat stormwater, and recharge groundwater supplies, impact fish and wildlife of significant value, and depreciate or obstruct the commerce, recreation, and aesthetic enjoyment of the public. The permits apply to both major and minor impact projects.
