M&E Delineation Results
M&E staff determined that the wetland area is associated with the north portion of the cropped field and the west area from the cropped field to the road ditch which is currently fallow land. This wetland area appears to have developed due to the surface water runoff and ponding for long enough periods of time to meet the criteria for wetlands due to saturated soil conditions.
According to the soil reports, the area of investigation is comprised of poorly-drained – Korobago silty loam (KyA), a well-drained – Tustin fine sand (TuB), a somewhat poorly-drained Morocco loamy fine sand (MoA), somewhat poorly drained Manawa silty clay loam (MaA) and a poorly drained Poygan silty clay loam (Pu).
The Wisconsin Wetland Inventory Classification for this wetland would be = E1Kf Emergent/wet meadow Persistent wet soil, Palustrine with areas currently being farmed.
The majority of the area of investigation is considered agricultural cropland and is classified as uplands.
