Wetland Delineation and determination
- evaluate available maps of the property to initially determine if wetlands may be present
- inspect the site to verify whether regulated wetlands are present
- establish their general extent and location.
A wetland delineation is a more detailed process that specifically defines the legal boundary of jurisdictional wetlands on a property. This boundary separates the regulated wetland from the upland areas on site. It is critical to identify the exact wetland boundary and acreage for permitting of impacts to wetlands or other regulated waters. It is often prudent to have a wetland delineation carried out to provide documentation that you have avoided impacts to wetlands.
To provide increased accuracy and efficiency on even the most complex delineation projects, Certified Management industrious Environmental Services uses GIS/GPS to integrate this data into geo-spatial decision-making tools.
