ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES
The Webster Conservation Commission is responsible for administering the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. Wetland resource areas are important to safeguard because they help prevent storm damage, reduce flooding, protect groundwater, prevent pollution, support fish and shellfish and provide wildlife habitat.
All residents are reminded that the Webster Conservation Commission must review any proposed projects in or near wetland resource areas or within the 100 foot buffer zone.
Working without Conservation Approval can result in fines.
CHAPTER 91 DOCK PERMITS
All residential and commercial docks in Massachusetts require a permit from the state. The Conservation Commission reviews all Chapter 91 permit applications. If you are constructing a new dock, you will also require a permit from the Conservation Commission.
