Abstract : The following report provides a framework for evaluating areas with potential wetland hydrology in irrigated and formerly irrigated croplands. The document is designed to provide insight into the complexity of identifying irrigated wetlands and to support current U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) guidance. Additionally, the analysis conducted helps to identify and refine areas that can be targeted for future investigation, including the installation of on-site groundwater monitoring equipment. The information herein supports and supplements current approaches and is not intended to replace or supersede current USACE national, division, or district level guidance for making wetland determinations in irrigated croplands. The procedures in this document should not be the sole basis for making wetland determinations for the purposes of the Clean Water Act; rather, these procedures are intended to supplement existing guidance and provide supporting information for making wetland determinations.
