Full FAQ Details

I have a pond (or stream) on my property and would like to remove some trees and shrubs along the edge. Are there any restrictions I should be aware of?

Answer

Any alteration of land bordering waters is regulated by state law. A well defined procedure must be followed before any action is taken. The law can be found at:

http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/mgl/131-40.htm

For more information or to initiate the permit process, contact the Sudbury Conservation Commission. The Conservation Commission website can be found at:
