    So, I am looking at a building lot that has a stream running right through the middle of it.

    Does someone know if I can legally keep the stream, but move it 70 feet away to a nearby perimeter lot line? Obviously moving it would allow me a larger building envelope footprint.

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

    Anyone out there on TUG have any expert knowledge about this type of situation?

    You need to check with your city or county (if outside of city limits). They may have a drainage control board or something similar. At our previous residence we wanted to place a 12- to 15-inch drainage pipe in a ditch at the front edge of our property. The pipe would connect pipes under our driveway and our neighbor's driveway and we would backfill over the pipe to gain additional yard space. It was denied due to a flood regulation with the parish (county).

    Check with zoning. There may be a flood easement, and at the least you would have to have engineers approve covering or re-routing the stream. Don't forget flood insurance for any structure. In the end, water goes where it wants to go, and that's usually the line of least resistance.
