Wetland delineation is a process used to determine whether an area meets the scientific definition of a wetland and, if the area does meet the definition, to discover the extent of the wetland. Wetlands are protected from intentional damage and destruction by a network of federal and state laws. Property owners, home builders, farmers, environmental engineers, conservationists, construction contractors and land developers all need to understand the biological, ecological and legal ramifications of wetlands and wetland disturbance, which are covered in this white paper.
