Wetlands in Philadelphia, PA

Wetlands are pieces of property characterized by saturated soil and aquatic plants. (Marshes, bogs, swamps, mangroves and fens are all distinct types of wetlands.) Because of their ecological value, wetlands are protected and their use is regulated under federal and state laws. Residential and commercial property owners seeking to buy property adjacent to or within a wetlands area should consult with wetlands attorneys, environmental lawyers or law firms that practice real estate law. Developing property on or near wetlands involves approvals from the Army Corps of Engineers and other government agencies, and lawyers can assist with the permitting and approvals process. Attorneys can also lobby regulators and elected officials on behalf of landowners and public interest groups when changes are being made to designated wetlands areas.
