Wetland Hydrology and Sustainability

Wetland basics are presented to illustrate their sensitivity to development. Wetland features such as buffer zones and hydrology ensure the wetland's ultimate sustainability. Unique and sensitive wetlands are explored to help identify crucial ecological resources. The designer is provided with the tools necessary to identify various forms of indirect impact.

Design scenarios are presented with the use of example project sites. This approach provides guidance on how to avoid indirect impacts by means of calculating the wetland hydrology and maintaining an acceptable level for future sustainability of the wetland complex. Upon completion of the workshop, designers have a greater understanding of the needs of wetlands with respect to ecological resources and permanent sustainability.


The goal of this workshop is to provide attendees with the tools necessary to guide them through designs for development in or near a wetland complex. Indirect impacts to the wetlands are often not recognized until after the ecological features have been depleted. It is crucial that designers and engineers realize the impacts their designs may have on the surrounding ecological environment.
