The Details of WW 13: Renovation of Abandoned Commercial Cranberry Bogs

What you need for WW 13: Renovation of Abandoned Commercial Cranberry Bogs

The purpose of this permit is to allow the Department to review proposed renovation of abandoned cranberry bogs. Since most of these abandoned cranberry bogs are considered wetland resource areas, there are certain interests that these wetland areas are presumed to protect. A pre-construction review of these proposals allows the Department to consider various mitigating measures, both required and proposed, that protect these interests. All persons who propose to renovate an eligible abandoned cranberry bog for the purpose of commercially raising cranberries must submit a WW 13 application to the MassDEP Regional Office responsible for the community in which the cranberry bog is located.
