The Waltham Conservation Commission is an appointed board of 7 local residents whose primary charter is to protect the city’s natural resources in a regulatory and advisory manner. The Commission is responsible for administering the Massachusetts Wetland Protection Act (Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 131, section 40). All projects in the city that are within 100 feet of wetlands (marshes, wet meadows, bogs, intermittent streams, vernal pools, etc.) or 200 feet from rivers and perennial streams must come before the Commission for formal review.

The Commission is also concerned with environmental planning, accepting gifts of land and money for conservation purposes, acquiring grant money for town acquisition of open space and advising other city boards on environmental concerns. Of special interest to the Waltham Commission are the Charles River, Cambridge Reservoir, and Hardy Pond, as well as other major wetlands throughout the city. The Commission also maintains jurisdiction over the Storer Conservation Land.
