The project will compare characteristics of naturally occurring wetlands with wetlands created or restored as mitigation required under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. It will also evaluate the utility of the Wetland Characterization Method developed by Corvallis Environmental Research Laboratory (ERL-C). The study includes field work and the associated data analysis. Data on vegetation, soils, and hydrology will be collected at each site. The study sites will be photographed and mapped, relative elevation measured, and general site descriptions compiled. Project results will be summarized for use by 404 personnel in making decisions concerning the use of creation and restoration as mitigation for proposed wetland destruction.
