Synopsis: The class will introduce you to the fundamentals of functional wetland design and provide you with the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design.

Additional Information:

There are five basic steps in the process of developing a successful wetland construction plan. As state and federal wetland mitigation standards evolve away from an acre-for-acre approach to a focus on replacing wetland functions, your understanding of the wetland's "wet part" has never been more critical. The 5 steps are:

  • PLANNING YOUR PROJECT
  • SELECTING YOUR CONSTRUCTION MODEL
  • PREPARING YOUR WATER BUDGET & HYDROGRAPH
  • DETERMINING PROPER VEGETATION
  • MANIPULATING SOIL

Building on your understanding of wetland functions, this course will also guide you through the many factors required to plan and design a functional wetland. Through classroom lessons and field training at a constructed wetland complex, you’ll learn "real world" applications with an emphasis on two key components that drive success: DDT (depth, duration & timing) of site hydrology and the landscape position.
