SB 233CommitteeHansenThis Bill institutes a State nontidal wetlands program and leaves intact the current State tidal wetlands program under Chapter 66 of Title 7. Prior to these amendments, the only regulatory protection of the State's nontidal wetlands was through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the federal Clean Water Act ("CWA"). Nontidal (freshwater) wetlands are valuable resources that contribute to the quality of life for all Delawareans and deserve a local program of protection. The State nontidal wetlands program will be, more efficient and more responsive than the federal program. The State nontidal wetlands program will cover gaps in federal jurisdiction under the CWA and mitigate the uncertainty surrounding the limits to federal jurisdiction. The bill also makes technical revisions and conforms certain language to language in 7 Del. C. Ch. 60, for consistency. AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 7 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE PROTECTION OF WETLANDS.
