 Updated MA Wetlands Protection Act regulations

Mass DEP has changed some sections of the MA Wetlands Protection Act Regulations.  The changes relate to

  • Notifications to MassDEP - 310 CMR 10.05(3)(b) and (6)(e) will be modified to require Conservation Commissions to submit Orders and Determinations to MassDEP through eDEP or by certified mail, return receipt requested. 

At the same time as the submittal of the Orders and Determinations to MassDEP, the regulations will require Conservation Commissions to submit Orders or Determinations to the applicant by certified mail, return receipt requested to ensure proof of delivery (or conservation commission can deliver documents to the applicant by hand).  Email submittals will not be allowed.

  • Clarification that notification to an abutter does not automatically confer standing to that abutter (310 CMR 10.54(4)(a)
  • Updated Wetland Plant List, 310 CMR 10.55(2)(c)

These regulations will be out for public comment on November 29, 2019.  Public Hearings are scheduled for January 8, 2020 (Worcester) and January 9, 2020 (Boston).

 

Comments will be due to MassDEP by January 30, 2020
