I know wetlands can be moved if they can be replicated elsewhere on a property, but I was unsure about a seasonal stream.

Anyone out there in Forum land have any knowledge about this type of situation?
If you haven't bought this lot yet, I would keep looking!
Trying to move a stream legally is like finding an old Indian arrow head and reporting to the news media.
