Are there wetlands on my property?
There are no maps or other resources that accurately show all of the wetlands in Prince George's County. Staff of the Countywide Planning Division can look at in-house information, such as the Maryland Nontidal Wetland Guidance Maps and the types of soils indicated in the Soils Survey and make an educated guess about the possible presence or absence of wetlands on a site. A full determination can only be made by having someone trained in wetland identification make a field visit. Staff of the Environmental Planning Section will not visit a property unless an application has been submitted through the development review process and appears to be insufficient for review.
