wetlands headaches


had a soil specialist out to the site today and basically any puddles he marked as wetlands for the surveyors(rained 3 days ago). Even a hole that was dug for large rock "disposal" hadnt been filled. it basically formed a 5'x10' pond clearly man made but that temp pit now is considered wetlands?!? 20 feet out of the proposed building site(75' buffer in my zone). just venting really, i know im probably in the wrong for something

May sound like a cute idea, but filling a designed "wetland", no matter how ridiculous the designation seems will get you more headaches than you ever bargained for. You need to meet with a rep from the Corps of Engineers, and show him the pit area first hand; offer to have a backhoe pull a couple of buckets out, if he need verification that it is a man made hole for the burial of rock debris.

Usually, the wetlands that are regulated against construction or by the Natural Resources Protection act, must be "hydraulically connected to waters of the state". This does not sound like the case. Call the inspector back to re-verify the "wetlands" and whether or not they are regulated.
