 Governor Chris Sununu, NHDES Commissioner Bob Scott Announce MajorOverhaul of Wetlands Rules

 Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Commissioner Bob Scott announced the release of a draft revision of the New Hampshire Wetlands rules, the first complete rewrite of therules since 1991. To overhaul the rules, NHDES worked closely with partner organizations, stakeholders, and concerned citizens to obtain significant public feedback on the development of wetland rule concepts, strategies, andprocess.

Since 2014, NHDES hosted over 100 listeningsessions, stakeholder workgroup sessions, partner meetings and presentations. NHDESheard from landowners, road agents, utility providers, loggers, foresters,engineers, conservation commissioners, industry and business, septic designers,general contractors, wetland scientists, conservation organizations, farmers,regional planning commissions, marine contractors, legislators, teachers,local, state, and federal officials and received hundreds of public comments.

 “Streamlining New Hampshire’s regulatoryframework is a key priority of my administration,” said Governor Chris Sununu.“These efforts are the most comprehensive overhaul of wetlands rules in over 25years, and represent a major step toward a more citizen-centered StateGovernment.”

 The NHDES wetlands rules regulate thefollowing type of resources: wetlands, surface waters (lakes, ponds),watercourses (streams, rivers), shorelines, vernal pools, prime wetlands,coastal lands, and tidal waters. Example projects impacted by these rulesinclude: beaches, docks, boathouses, wall construction, riprap, bankstabilization, forestry, utility, agriculture, trails, dredging, filling,residential and commercial development, and roadway construction.

 “By listening to our stakeholders on ways toimprove the wetlands rules, we can reduce many of the issues that arise duringthe permit process; therefore, making it more streamlined, predictable, andtransparent for both the applicant and NHDES,” said Bob Scott, NHDESCommissioner.

 Thedraft wetlands rules propose over 50 new definitions to provide clarity and consistency, shorten the review time for lower scrutiny approvals and expandthe number of projects that qualify for streamlined review, including streamcrossing projects. The new rules clarify permit processes, project classification, standard conditions, avoidance, minimization, and mitigation requirements, and application review standards. The draft rules also providesignificant changes to the coastal rules and updates to the prime wetlandsrules.

NHDES is now accepting public comments on thedraft wetland rules. NHDES will be hosting five public input sessions in thefollowing locations:

 Concord: February 26, 2018
Portsmouth: February 28, 2018
Laconia: March 1, 2018
Keene: March 5, 2018
Lancaster: March 7, 2018

The draft wetlands rules, rules summary,wetlands rules FAQs, draft BMPs, public input session schedule and publiccomment collection sheets may be found here:


The NHDES public comment deadline on the draftrules is April 20, 2018.  Once the draft rules process is complete, formalrulemaking will begin, including public hearings and additional public commentperiod. The adoption of the revised wetlands rules is anticipated to becomplete by the end of 2018.
