    Right Whale - Humarock

The staff is available to answer questions regarding wetlands and the permitting process, and will assist an applicant with permit application questions.  As part of her responsibilities, the Conservation Agent/ Natural Resource Officer reviews each building permit application and Board of Health application to determine if an applicant will need to file for a permit with the Conservation Commission.

You will need to file an application if you are doing any work within a resource area or within 100 feet of a wetland resource area or within 200 feet of a river or if the proposed work is deemed by the Conservation Commission to likely have a significant or cumulative detrimental effect upon a resource area.
