Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water


This paper discusses the general concepts and benefits of using of hydrologic budget techniques to describe the typical hydrologic conditions that might be expected at prospective site using readily available local climatic and streaniflow data. The likelihood of a specific wetland hydroregime being sustained from year to year is particularly important for forested wetlands where excessive wetness can be as undesirable as overly dry conditions.
