Wetland Registry

The District’s 2020 Wetland Conservation Plan update included the release of the District’s Wetland Registry geodatabase, a publicly available interactive map of 92% of the District’s wetlands. This planning tool is intended to improve wetland conservation and protection by allowing applicants to scan project areas for potential wetlands and streams to be avoided. Baseline data for each mapped wetland can be accessed by clicking on an individual resource. The Registry data represent approximate locations, do not include every wetland and stream, and do not replace the need for site-specific wetland and stream delineations or jurisdictional determinations by the US Army Corps of Engineers. View the Wetland Registry.

A wetland and stream presence absence survey by a qualified wetland scientist or consultant is also a useful way to locate streams and wetlands during the planning stages of a project. Applicants may also request DOEE to perform a wetland and stream presence/absence survey. To request more information on presence/absence surveys contact [email protected].
