Now available: An updated list of municipalities with non-zoning wetland bylaws/ordinances. The list includes links to the municipal bylaws/ordinances, as well as to accompanying regulations, and information on how each bylaw//ordinance is stricter than the state Wetlands Protection Act.

To review the list, please download these two documents:

Instructions on how to use the database (in PDF). Read this first.

The data base (in Excel),

The list is derived from information online at the time we created the data base (winter/spring 2017) and online searches done in 2015. We cannot be responsible for the accuracy or completeness of the information provided. It is our best effort yet may include some inaccuracies for many reasons. Municipalities may amend their bylaws/ordinances and regulations, the versions posted online may not always be the most current version, some may not be posted online, and a municipality may interpret its bylaw/ordinance/regulations in a manner we did not anticipate. We welcome receiving suggested corrections from conservation commissions for their bylaws/ordinances/regulations. Please email those to
