Not sure about the type of permits needed but it's almost illegal to take a shovel full of dirt away from the stream bank.What type of permits did you have to get to do that?
Permits? If its on your land, do what you need to do.AndyMeyer said:that looks like where I am headed. Just a few questions.
1. What type of permits did you have to get to do that?
2. How deep does the water need to be?
Almost true. I would agree, stay below 5,000 square feet of earth disturbed area. This would eliminate the need for an Erosion Control Plan. Even without an outlet you could still create pollution or other problems that DEP and the local conservation district can investigate. Contact your DEP regional office to see if any permits are necessary. If wetlands are involved, a permit will be necessary. So most likely you will need a permit. The permits are usually easy to do but take a while to get due to backlog. If you have questions, feel free to PM Me.bsherman252 said:Dont touch an existing wetland or stream, make sure your drainage area is less than 100 acres to your pond, do not disturb more than 5000 sq ft when creating a berm, and do not have an out let pipe and dep, your local conservation district and the corps cant touch you. If you have a decent drainage area to get water to a point it will flood. If you keep it close to a stream without impacting any wetlands or the stream you can flood it yourself. PS make sure you have a good clay or highly compacted soil so the water does not infiltrate.
