How do I know if there are wetlands on my property?

Wetlands are determined by soil type and are not always easily identified by sight. A registered soil scientist is able to determine whether wetlands are present on a piece of land. The Wetlands Enforcement Officer may be able to advise you from a review of maps and records. If wetlands exist on your property or in the vicinity, any work planned may require a permit, even if the work site is a considerable distance from the wetlands.
