Chapter 105 Water Encroachment Permits
Streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands, and other bodies of water are essential to habitat both for people and wildlife. Therefore, activities in or near these features are regulated and in general will require a permit to fill or dig in a stream, put in a pipe or bridge, relocate a waterway, or work in a wetland.
General Information on building and maintaining a pond and what permits are needed for these activities can be found here.
