METHODS FOR ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION IMPACTS ON A WETLAND ECOSYSTEM--A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH

In 1979 the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department made application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a permit, as required by Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, to allow placement of fill material in a wetland during construction of US-67 in White County, Arkansas. Coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers resulted in the Highway Department agreeing to monitor impacts before, during, and after construction as a condition for issuance of the Section 404 permit. The wetland monitoring program and the procedure used to derive the monitoring program are described. In addition, a literature summary is presented for researchers who may be required to analyze impacts on wetland ecosystems.
