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.

This class serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of functional design and provides the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design.

Building on the student's 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, 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.

Featured Topics

Hydrogeomorphology: The importance of landscape position and where water is coming from

Water Budget Calculation: Water inputs/outputs and TR-55 runoff curves

The Thornthwaite Method: One method for calculating evapotranspiration

Estimating Stream Flow and Producing Basic Hydrographs: Create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design
