Assessing Wetland Functions and Values
The objective of this project is to support and enhance the State of New Hampshire's wetland protection program. Support of such activities is within the intent of the Section 104 (b)(3) of the Clean Water Act which authorizes grants to states and others for projects relating to the causes, effects, extent, prevention, reduction and elimination of pollution. Specifically, the project proposes to develop the New Hampshire Wetland Mapper, an easy-to-use web tool that provides public access to data and techniques that support the study and evaluation of wetlands in New Hampshire based on the "Method for the Comparative Evaluation of Non-tidal Wetlands in New Hampshire" (NH Method). The New Hampshire Wetlands Mapper will offer users regularly updated data from "GRANIT", the NH state GIS clearinghouse hosted by UNH Complex Systems Research Center. It will also allow users to augment or update information and procedures for wetlands mapping and evaluation. The web-based tool will allow the user to explore wetland features and characteristics and use the information in a watershed context to answer questions about wetland functions, identify potential prime wetlands, conduct wetland inventories, and identify potential restoration sites and at-risk wetlands. Information access from a single point will facilitate and enhance the application of the NH Method by community decision-makers, volunteers, and natural resource professionals. The project's team will further develop a public outreach program to teach people how to use the NH Wetland Mapper in wetland inventory and evaluation projects
