Wetland Delineation


A wetland delineation is performed by the applicant or its consultants to determine the location and size of section 404 wetlands or waters of the United States on a specific tract of land. The wetland delineation is then sent to the Army Corps of Engineers who ultimately determines what is or what isn’t a wetland or waters of the United States by issuing an approved or preliminary Jurisdictional Determination (JD). JMB biologists have the skills to analyze the vegetation, soils, and hydrology of your property to determine what is or is not a wetland.

Our turn-key service provides our clients with a wetland delineation report and guidance with the regulatory process to receive the JD quickly and efficiently.

The extensive knowledge of JMB’s staff in all aspects of mitigation banking makes us experts in navigating through the process of keeping mitigation banks in compliance with the US Army Corps of Engineers. If you are experiencing compliance problems or just want someone to handle your compliance needs, contact JMB for expert solutions to mitigation bank compliance issues.
