    Projects that might alter streams or wetlands are likely to need permits. The
    regulations are wide-ranging and complex. Numerous agencies control what
    can and cannot be done. Furthermore, the agencies’ definitions of wetlands and
    streams can differ, and some regulations conflict.
    This guide offers help by explaining current laws and providing examples of the
    permitting processes.
    Still, if you are contemplating such a project it is your responsibility to identify
    and address all governmental regulations that apply to it before—not after—
    work begins. Be tenacious in your pursuit of answers from agency employees,
    who daily handle many inquiries, permits and other activities. Spending
    the extra day or two to hear back from permitting agencies will save you
    much more time in the long run than will proceeding through a project with
    uncertainty.
    Even activities aimed at improving the quality of wetlands and streams, such
    as habitat restoration projects, are subject to permits.
