Note regarding RETAINING WALLS from NHDES Wetlands Bureau:
Generally, the repair of a retaining wall structure on a non-tidal water body requires a permit from DES. Depending on the scope and nature of the repairs, one can file a Permit by Notification (PBN) #12 (Repair or replacement of an existing retaining wall.) if one meets all the required criteria outlined in the application packet. If the repair exceeds the criteria outlined in the PBN forms, one should file a Minimum Impact Expedited Application. Should you have additional questions please visit the DES website or contact the Inspector of the day at (603) 271-2147.
If so, please click here to access and familiarize yourself with the Shoreland Protection Act.
It is very important that you understand what may or may not be allowed to do under this act.
