WETLANDS

Tidal wetlands serve as spawning and nursery grounds for a variety of marine life. In addition to their habitat value, these areas also assist in flood control, improve water quality, reduce erosion, and serve as an important food source for marine and inland wildlife.

Activitivies altering, using, filling or impacting tidal wetlands, such as but not limited to bulkheads, riprap, boat ramps, and road crossings may require review by and approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Virginia Marine Resource Commission (VMRC) and potentially other agencies.
