What areas are protected by the Wetland Regulations?
Both freshwater and coastal wetlands are protected. In addition to the obvious wetlands such as marshes, ponds, bogs, etc., other areas considered wetland resource areas include coastal banks, inland banks and land subject to coastal storm flowage (the 100-year flood plain). Additionally, the upland within 100ft of any of these resource areas and the land within 200ft of a river or perennial stream are protected.
Is there a local wetlands protection bylaw and where can I get a copy?
A copy of Wellfleet's Wetlands Protection Bylaw and the Regulations may be downloaded at no charge from this website on the Conservation Commissions webpage.
