Here in TN you need an ARAP permit. Aquatic Resource Alteration Permit. Go digging through the creek here and it can be a big fine. That's if you're just crossing it let alone wallowing straight through 200 yards of it. They will generally want you to have some sediment or siltation abatement plan presented prior to doing anything. You should be able to go to the WV-DENR to check. Sometimes you can have one in a few weeks, it'd take longer than that here for this job.
