Working Near Waterways

Many routine activities on farms and rural properties involve working in or near waterways:  moving woody debris after a flood, building a stream crossing for a driveway, revegetating eroding riverbanks or digging drainage channels.  Many laws are in place to manage the impacts of these activities. It is important to understand your legal responsibilities when planning any activity in or near a waterway, but the laws aren’t always
