Coastal Environmental Consulting, LLC secures State and Federal Wetlands Permits for residential, commercial, utility, and public projects in freshwater wetlands and wetlands buffers (transition areas). We also secure Letters of Interpretation (LOIs) for verification of boundaries of freshwater wetlands and wetlands buffers, or the absence of wetlands and wetlands buffers at subject properties.
Impacts to freshwater wetlands and wetlands buffers are regulated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection under the Freshwater Wetlands Protection Act Rules (N.J.A.C. 7:7A). 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 Freshwater Wetlands approvals:
- Letters of Interpretation (LOIs);
- Transition Area Waivers;
- Freshwater Wetlands General Permits;
- Freshwater Wetlands Individual Permits;
- Section 404 Permits.
If you suspect wetlands are located on or near your site or that your project might require a Freshwater Wetlands Permit, call Coastal for a consultation. Coastal will determine whether wetlands or wetlands buffers are located on your property and whether your proposed development requires a Freshwater Wetlands General Permit, Transition Area Waiver, or Freshwater Wetlands Individual 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 Freshwater 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!
