Earth Design Consultants, Inc. performed a wetland delineation on a site located in Warren, OH. Jurisdictional wetlands, wetlands that meet criteria for hydrology, hydrophytic vegetation and hydric soils, were found on the site. Since the site was proposed for development an analysis of development alternatives was also performed. This analysis demonstrates that steps were taken to avoid and reduce the number of wetland acres
that would be affected by development. Finally, a conceptual wetland design was developed for this site. A conceptual wetland design takes a look at the site’s hydrology and vegetation and sets up steps for a more detailed study should constructed wetlands be required to replace the functions and values of wetlands that are affected by development.
