Lecker Park Wetland Investigation and GPS Survey, Grand Chute, Wisconsin

Lecker Park Wetland Investigation and GPS Survey, Grand Chute, WisconsinR.A. Smith National examined a total of 16 data points and delineated and GPS surveyed three wetlands totaling 19.22 acres on a 40-acre parcel in the Town of Grand Chute in May 2012. The delineation was completed to assist the Town in planning for a proposed bike park on a former landfill site.

The wetland delineation consisted of a map review followed by a site visit to delineate the on-site wetlands. The fieldwork documented the presence and absence of hydrophytic vegetation, wetland hydrology, and hydric soil indicators outlined in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) 1987 Wetland Delineation Manual, Technical Report Y-87-1 (1987) and subsequent guidance documents (USACE 1991, 1992), Guidelines for Submitting Wetland Delineations in Wisconsin to the St. Paul District Corps of Engineers (USACE 1996), the Basic Guide to Wisconsin’s Wetlands and Their Boundaries (Wisconsin Department of Administration Coastal Management Program, 2005), and the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Northeast / Northcentral Region (Version 2.0), the guide for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) Field Indicators of Hydric Soils (version 7.0) in the United States, and in general accordance with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) guidelines.
