A wetland is an area that contains water at, near or above the land’s surface, long enough to be capable of supporting aquatic or hydrophilic plants, has soils indicative of wet conditions and hydrology. Areas that meet these criteria are regulated by Federal and State laws, and may also be subject to county, city or village ordinances. Therefore, it is essential to know the boundaries of wetlands on your property before embarking on any activities, such as building, mowing or pond construction. Any project that may impact a wetland requires proper permitting.
The biologists at Cason & Associates who conduct wetland delineations have completed Wetland Delineation Training courses conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. These biologists can help you to identify the wetland boundaries on your property and assist you with any permitting that may be required.
