Wetland Delineation

Overview - National Wetland Team

The National Wetland Team provides guidance, tools, training, and leadership within NRCS regarding the development and application of science-based methods and tools related to wetland identification and delineation. Team members serve on several national and regional teams, including the National Technical Committee for Hydrophytic Vegetation, National Advisory Team to regionalize the 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual, and national and regional plant panels to update the 1988 National List of Vascular Plant Species That Occur in Wetlands. Additionally, the Wetland Team is leading an effort by NRCS to develop and deliver Wetland Delineation for NRCS, a training course which will be available to NRCS staffs through the National Employee Development Center. Team members hold lead roles and provide technical oversight in all existing NRCS training courses related to wetland identification and delineation, including hydric soils, advanced hydric soils, identification of hydrophytic vegetation, and hydrology tools for wetland delineation.
