Event description

Description

This training will expand upon the wetland delineation principles discussed in basic wetland delineation, focusing on problematic indicators of hydric vegetation, soils, and hydrology.

Upon completion of the two days students will be able to develop a wetland hydrology monitoring program, determine plant species composition and percent cover using transect sampling/direct sampling techniques, and analyze soil characteristics useful in wetland delineation using field and laboratory techniques.

One discussion focus will be delineation submittal requirements established by the Army Corps of Engineers to determine if identified wetlands and waters are federally-regulated according to the SWANCC and the Rapanos/Carabell Supreme Court decisions.

Methods and procedures will be covered for collecting and presenting the data requested by the Army Corps, including how to determine stream order, relevant reach, ascertain if a drainage is a relatively permanent water, and how to document physical, chemical, and biological conditions of the relevant reach.

Any recent changes to the Army Corps wetland delineation verification procedures that arise due to public review and comment will also be discussed.

Lastly, we will present examples from actual delineations and permitting scenarios to demonstrate successful techniques to get a verified delineation and discuss the “grey areas” of regulatory permitting.

Training will be led by bay area delineation experts Tanner Harris, MS and Aaron Arthur, MS
