Using Wetland Functional Data to Support Watershed Level Planning
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Kevin Benck, Kevin Stark
Douglas County, WI has identified the need to develop a comprehensive watershed plan that includes the current wetlands ability to perform various functions based on wetland type and position, potentially restorable wetlands, and other pertinent data. Once created, these data would inform a multi-criteria decision support system that would support land management, proposed development, evaluation of wetland mitigation proposals and potentially a regional in-lieu fee mitigation program.
