The regulatory provisions of Minnesota's Wetland Conservation Act (WCA) are primarily administered by local government units (LGUs) with oversight by the Board of Water & Soil Resources (BWSR). State agencies administer WCA on state-owned or controlled lands. Each LGU has an associated Technical Evaluation Panel (TEP) to provide technical expertise, advise and recommendations on WCA compliance related to the various project/activity decisions. The TEP includes a BWSR wetland specialist as well as representatives from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the local Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the LGU. DNR provides enforcement for the regulatory provisions of the act. The following documents provide key contact information.
