The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, Grand Junction, CO Regulatory Office will hold the next Regulatory Program Workshop on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 1:30-4 pm at the Grand Junction City Auditorium, 250 N 5th Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501. The Auditorium is located on the first floor.
Originally established as the “Regulatory Information Forum” in 2006, Regulatory Program Workshops are held periodically to provide the public with information about Corps permit requirements and updates on program execution in the Sacramento District. The workshop is open to all interested parties, including the regulated public, consultants, environmental organizations, and federal, state, and local agencies.
This free workshop will focus on Aquatic Resource Delineations and, while open to the public, is geared to wetland consultants who perform field delineations. We will discuss proper field protocol including ordinary high water mark (OHWM), aquatic resource types, wetland data sample locations, and completion of wetland data sheets focusing on plants, soils, and hydrology. Advanced questions are encouraged and may be sent to Susan.Nall@usace.army.mil.
