A property owner may use the bed of public waters wetlands for pasture or cropland during periods of drought if:
(1) dikes, ditches, tile lines, or buildings are not constructed; and
(2) the agricultural use does not result in the drainage of the public waters wetlands.
A landowner may fill a public waters wetland to accommodate wheeled booms on irrigation devices if the fill does not impede normal drainage.
