Regulation Authority:

R.I. Gen. Laws § 46-23-1, et seq.

Purpose and Reason:

The CRMC proposes to repeal and replace the existing freshwater wetlands in the vicinity of the coast rules upon the adoption and implementation of proposed new freshwater wetlands in the vicinity of the coast rules identified as 650-RICR-20-00-9. Amendments to state law led to extensive proposed rule revisions that reflect changes in the definition of freshwater wetlands and other terminology associated with regulated areas and the establishment of new buffer standards among other requirements.
