What are the requirements for filing with the Conservation Commission and when do I file?
Anytime you want to do work in or near wetlands, flood plains, banks, river front areas, beaches, and surface water.

Instructions for completing applications are available in the State Engineering Department office or from its web site. You can also get some guidance from the Engineering Department. However, many applicants find it to be easier and faster to hire and engineer or wetland specialist who are familiar with the process, which can seem overwhelming to people unfamiliar with the regulations.
