Wetlands are critical resources which warrant careful consideration and protection. NP&V has a strong environmental conscience, which includes identification and protection of critical ecological habitats, with particular interest in wetlands. Freshwater and tidal wetlands are abundant along the coast and inlands of the tri-state area. Wetlands are regulated by Village, Town, State and Federal government through various permit requirements. NP&V performs all types of wetland delineations, evaluation of wetlands functions, permitting and protection through environmental design.
