Wetland Assessment

In some cases, a client may wish to know about the presence of potential wetlands on a site without needing them delineated or specifically identified (e.g. when a land purchase is being considered). This is where a wetland assessment may be appropriate. Tasks in a wetland assessment include:

  • Acquire accurate property boundary maps/ surveys of subject site
  • Review off-site documentation, including NWI Maps, Soil Surveys, Aerial Photos, USGS Quad Maps and other recorded information
  • Perform Field Reconnaissance, including walking site to identify potential wetlands
  • Mark potential wetland areas in the field for later delineation, if desired by client
  • Compile assessment letter or report detailing findings for client
