For regulatory purposes under the Clean Water Act, the term wetlands means "those areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or ground water at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions. Wetlands generally include swamps, marshes, bogs and similar areas."
Wetland determinations and delineations must be completed by a qualified consultant and be verified by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
If you are interested in having a wetland determination/delineation done on your property, please contact the Kenosha County Department of Planning and Development at (262) 857-1895.
The zoning district applicable to “wetland” zoning is the C-1 Lowland Conservancy Zoning District.
