Wetlands are found from the tundra to the tropics, and on just about every continent (except Antarctica). But being a wetland is more than standing ankle deep in muck. That’s why so many folks have a hard time understanding them for they aren’t “wet” all the time.
For regulatory purposes under the Federal Clean Water Act, the term wetlands means “those areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or groundwater at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions. Wetlands generally include swamps, marshes, bogs and similar areas.”
Think that sounds complicated, come to New Jersey where the State regulates wetlands differently.

In a state that is predominantly a swamp, New Jersey’s wetland rules are some of the toughest in the nation. And when it comes to environmental site constraints that can derail a project, having wetlands on your site is at the top of the list. So having a firm well versed in the State and Federal regulations is a crucial part of your project’s success.
