Centennial Valley State Wildlife Area Wetland Delineation

  • Client: Ducks Unlimited, Weld County, Colorado
  • Date: Feb 2011
  • Info: Blue Mountain Environmental was contracted by Ducks Unlimited to delineate 35 acres of atypical riverine wetlands along the South Platte River.

The goal of this project was to identify wetlands in preparation for management activities that would restore sloughs and point bars to improve waterfowl habitat. Wetland identification procedures were conducted in accordance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual (USACOE, 1987) and the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Great Plains Region (Version 2.0).
