How do I get my bond back?

Once the regulated activities are complete and all conditions of the permit have been satisfied, a letter or email can be submitted to Wetlands requesting a final inspection and release of your bond. The compliance inspector will be looking to see if the site is stabilized and the work complies with the approved plans. She will also review the file to see that the end-of-project requirements have been met. These include foundation as-built plans, engineer’s certification of compliance, drainage management plans filed on the land records, etc. The portion of the bond attributed plantings will have a “hold” period, which is often two years, and compliance is met if 80% of the plants are thriving.

Bonded funds are mailed back to the entity who posted the bond. Without written authorization, the bond cannot be assigned to anyone other than the person who posted it.
