Abstract:

Regional supplements to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual provide guidance on identification and delineation of wetlands throughout the United States. This document outlines a process to periodically revise the supplements to 1 update wetland indicators to reflect the state of the science 2 streamline and clarify delineation methodologies and 3 address new challenges associated with problematic wetland delineations. By updating the supplements to reflect advances in the science and to promote effective resolution of difficult wetland issues, the Corps further improves wetland delineation accuracy and efficiency in support of the wetland permitting program.
