COURSE TITLE: Wetland Mitigation Design Principles

INSTRUCTORS Michael Rolband

COURSE DESCRIPTION This is a basic interdisciplinary course that provides the students with an understanding of the principles with wetland mitigation design. Students will learn what wetlands are and why we mitigate for wetland losses. Students will learn the basic process of design, construction, planting, as well as the post construction monitoring and maintenance of wetland mitigation areas. The course will focus on the understanding of the hydrogeology, water budget inputs and outputs in the design process. Additionally, this class will help students with review of wetland mitigation plans that they receive and help them be able to pick up on any warning signals of designs especially with soils and hydrology. The course consists of two days. The first day will be in a classroom as a lecture format. The second day will be a field day to look at wetland mitigation projects with different hydrology sources (groundwater, surface water, and vernal pools) and different outfall system types.

Credit Points: 1.06
