This report describes a process for locating, designing, constructing, maintaining, and monitoring wetland replacement areas. This report is supplemented by appendixes that discuss various aspects of wetland creation and restoration. These guidelines will be of interest to those involved with wetland replacement areas (e.g., engineers, environmentalists, planners, and regulators), both as a concept and as an actuality, once it is obvious that the creation of a replacement wetland is necessary. Although not explicitly within the scope of this study, the guidelines also will be useful to those involved with wetland banks--the development of wetlands that could be used to compensate for future takings elsewhere.
