(b) Man-made nontidal drainage ditches, culverts, catch basins, and [man-made detention] ponds that have been legally constructed to collect [and] or convey storm water and spring run-off, [and that have been maintained so that wetlands vegetation has not become dominant, or] fire ponds and intake areas of dry hydrants that have been legally constructed to provide water for municipal firefighting purposes as approved by a local fire chief, and man-made water conveyance systems that are used for the commercial or industrial purpose of collecting, conveying, storing, and recycling water, may be cleaned out when necessary to preserve their usefulness without a permit from the department. Such drainage facilities, fire ponds, [or] intake areas of any hydrants, or man-made water conveyance systems may be cleaned out by hand or machine; provided, that the facility is neither enlarged nor extended into any area of wetlands jurisdiction of the department of environmental services, dredged spoils are deposited in areas outside wetlands jurisdiction of the department of environmental services, and wetlands or surface waters outside the limits of the constructed drainage facility, fire pond, [or] intake area of a dry hydrant, or man-made water conveyance system are neither disturbed nor degraded.
