• Methodology to Assess Soil, Hydrologic, and Site Parameters that Affect Wetland Restoration-Phase II

    NCDOT Research Project Number: 2004-19

 Executive Summary

  • This project is a continuation of the research conducted under Research Project 2001-09, "Methodology to Assess Soil Hydrologic & Site Parameters that Affect Wetland Restoration Success". The overall goal of the research is to evaluate the strategy and performance of the restoration of wetland functions in Juniper Bay and to test alternative restoration methods. Restoration efforts will include filling in drainage ditches as necessary to restore historical hydrologic functions, re-establishing the forest community in accordance with community types and providing soil management as needed to assist in hydrologic function restoration. This project is significant because it will help to assist the NCDOT in permit acquisition and help to improve effective restoration techniques of wetlands.​
