Training will be led by bay area delineation experts Amanda McCarthy, PhD, Aaron Arthur, MS/CCB and Greg Sproull, MS.
This training will expand upon the wetland delineation principles discussed in basic wetland delineation, focusing on tools for dealing with difficult wetland situations. We will discuss indicators for problematic vegetation, soils, and hydrology, as well as alternative approaches for complex situations such as grasslands on Clear Lake clay and other dark soils, wetland-upland mosaics, or delineations on very large sites.
- Discuss jurisdictional issues and recent court decisions affecting the 2015 Waters of the U.S. definition
- Develop a deeper awareness of the issues that affect complex jurisdictional determinations and identify how these issues may affect the outcome of a delineation.
- Review any formal guidance issued by the San Francisco, Sacramento, or Los Angeles USACE Districts.
