Under the Wetland Conservation Act, a farmer can't drain or reduce a wetland on his or her property without creating or expanding a wetland elsewhere. Farmers also can replace lost wetlands by obtaining wetland credits from a landowner who has eligible wetlands.

More information can be found at http://www.nd.gov/ndda can help bring the parties together.
