Coastal Environmental Consulting, LLC secures State and Federal Wetlands Permits for residential, commercial, utility, and public projects in coastal wetlands and coastal wetlands buffers. Coastal wetlands are wetlands delineated and mapped pursuant to the Wetlands Act of 1970. Such wetlands appear on the Coastal Wetlands Maps, which are on 1971/72 base aerial photographs. (Tidal wetlands that are not mapped on the Coastal Wetlands Maps are regulated as Freshwater Wetlands.)
Impacts to coastal wetlands are regulated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection under the Coastal Zone Management Rules (N.J.A.C. 7:13). Additionally, discharges of dredge or fill material into waters of the United States, including wetlands, is regulated by the US Army Corps of Engineers under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 CFR Part 323).
Coastal secures the following types of Coastal Wetlands approvals:
- Coastal Wetlands Permits;
- Section 404 Permits.
If you suspect wetlands are located on or near your site or that your project might require a Coastal Wetlands Permit, call Coastal for a consultation. Coastal will determine whether coastal wetlands are located on your property and whether your proposed development requires a Coastal Wetlands Permit. We will also determine whether a Section 404 Permit from the US Army Corps of Engineers is required.
Several local engineers, surveyors, architects and attorneys rely on Coastal to handle the Coastal Wetlands Permitting process for their clients. Coastal communicates directly with each client to clearly understand their project goals and educate them on the process. Don’t worry, Coastal does all the heavy lifting for you!
