Agricultural Lands

Streams and Watercourses are protected under the Federal Fisheries Act. While Regulations and setbacks may vary on agricultural lands from non-agricultural lands, an assessment should be conducted prior to making changes in or near watercourses on your land. Barsanti Environmental Services provides Qualified Environmental Professionals to identify the Top-of-Bank and will prepare a brief report with recommendations for appropriate streamside setbacks that will help you remain in compliance with the Fisheries Act.

If you are planning to make changes on your farm to increase farming efficiencies or are in need of a new stream crossing, Barsanti Environmental Services can provide informative advice upfront to help you maximize the usable acreage of your land while protecting important fish habitat.
