  • WDM 2012

    The US Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District, announces the availability of the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Eastern Mountains and Piedmont, Version 2.0. This supplement was developed by regional expert delineators with input from state and Federal agencies, academia and other local experts. It was peer reviewed by a panel of independent scientists and field tested by interagency teams of state and Federal agencies to determine the clarity and ease of use of the document and whether its use will result in any spatial changes in wetland jurisdiction for Clean Water Act Section 404 purposes.

  • NWPL 2012

    The US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Little Rock District, announces the availability of the updated National Wetland Plant List (NWPL). The NWPL plays a critical role in wetland determinations under the Clean Water Act and Food Security Act. Wetlands are evaluated using three parameters – soils, hydrology and vegetation. Using sampling protocols outlined in the Regional Supplements to the 1987 Wetland Delineation Manual, the indicator status is then used to determine whether the vegetation parameter is met.

  • MSMM 2012

    Expiration date: 4/26/2012

    On March 30, 2007, the five U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Districts in the State of Missouri adopted the MSMM. The MSMM was developed in response to agency comments for implementing a stream mitigation assessment method to adequately address compensatory mitigation for stream impacts and the need for a consistent standard to be used in all Corps Districts in the State of Missouri. The MSMM became the primary tool used for the evaluation of stream impacts and mitigation proposals for Department of the Army permit evaluations within the State of Missouri. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources also modified their State of Missouri Aquatic Resources Mitigation Guidelines to include the MSMM.
