Wetland Review: All Other Projects

Wetland Analysis Report



Use this report when you are proposing to develop your property with a commercial use (anything other than a single-family house or an agriculture use), or divide it. The report, prepared by a private wetland consultant and reviewed by Pierce County, will analyze impacts from the proposed development on the wetland(s) and will determine the category and boundary of the wetland and the size of the buffer.

Wetland Verification



Use this application when Pierce County records indicate you may have wetlands within 315 feet of your site, but you are confident there aren't any wetlands, or that your project will avoid all wetlands and buffers. Either a Pierce County wetland biologist or a private wetland consultant can perform the verification. If prepared by a private consultant, Pierce County will review the verification documentation.
