Participants will be shown the finer points of hydric soil identification using the nationally approved “Field Indicators of Hydric Soils in the United States”. Participants will see examples in the field of different hydric soils in several types of wetland systems within the Coastal Plain or Piedmont Region. Participants will learn the relationship and morphological characteristics of wetland hydrology as it relates to hydric soils. You will be able to discern the differences of flash, infrequent hydrology associated with uplands and the frequent long duration hydrology associated with wetlands. Also, the course will deal with situations such as drought, newly created hydric soils, and drained hydric soils.
Participants will be able to delineate atypical situations, problem areas, drained wetlands and differentiate between isolated and non-isolated wetlands. All three parameters of the delineation process will be covered, hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils, and hydrology.
All field work. This course may meet the requirements for GADOT pre-qualified consultants. GADOT considers course substitutions on a case-by-case basis.
