The Coastal Manual helps clarify how state agencies interpret the existing Wetlands Protection Act Regulations, and addresses a number of frequently asked technical and procedural questions related to the their implementation. 

This workshop, led by staff from CZM and DEP, will provide an overview of many general topics, as well as some specific guidance on some particularly challenging issues where technical assistance is often requested. 


If you wish to attend and have not already done so, please RSVP asap so we can be sure to have handouts prepared for you.


Also, please bring along a ruler or engineer's scale, as we will be doing hands-on activities.
