It is particularly important to understand and comply with wetland delineation boundaries when making plans for lakefront development. The slightest deviation from these boundaries has the potential to cause significant problems.

Our skilled attorneys can help you properly comply with the relevant lakefront development and environmental regulations. You may be forced to stop your renovations and pay a large fine if you fail to obtain the correct permit or fill out the required paperwork accurately.

We work regularly with Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources and other regulatory agencies in order to ensure that you are complying with the most recent wetlands delineation and land use and development regulations, as well as other environmental laws. If you are looking to make improvements to your property, there are most likely regulations and required permits that will affect your project. You are encouraged to discuss the legal requirements of doing so with an experienced attorney before you begin planning; permit violations can cause significant unforeseen costs and delay.
