Last modified on February 12, 2015.
No person may alter any freshwater wetland or adjacent area without having first submitted an application and obtained an interim permit for the alteration from the department. Some exemptions apply. The regulations list procedures for acquiring permits and procedures used in classifying areas as freshwater wetlands. The Department of Environmental Conservation is responsible for classifying and mapping such areas, with the exception of lands in Adirondack Park, where the Adirondack Park Agency is responsible.
