Wetland DelineationsWetland Delineations

Wetland delineations are often a critical part of any landowner's decision on land use. Wetlands play a critical role in our ecosystem and provide valuable services such as cleaning up polluted water before it reaches lakes, streams or ground water, storing floodwater, providing habitat, protecting shorelines, providing open space and sometimes recharging ground water.

Wisconsin has lost about 50% and Illinois has lost about 90% of its wetlands in the last 300 years. Recognizing the potential for continued or accelerated degradation of the nation's waters, the United States Congress enacted the Clean Water Act ("Act"). Under the Act, excavating or placement of any material in low areas or wetlands requires approval by regulatory agencies. If you are planning a development project, you must know precisely the boundaries of wetlands on the property as determined through procedures specified in state and federal rules. A wetland delineation establishes the boundary between wetlands and uplands (or non-wetlands) by assessing whether the characteristics of wetlands (e.g. vegetation, soil and hydrology), are present on the site. A wetland professional is generally required to make the boundary determination.

Tallgrass Restoration® can provide that service for you. It has experienced wetland professionals on staff who can undertake wetland delineations for you so that you can make important decisions about your property.
