222-16-036. *Wetland mapping
Wetlands mapping is required in connection with any forest practices application where the proposed activities relate to timber harvest or road construction.
(1) Landowners must map all forested wetlands and Type A and B Wetlands where more than one-tenth (0.1) acre of such wetlands will be impacted by filling and where mitigation for such filling is required.
(2) Landowners must make an approximate determination of the boundaries and map all forested wetlands (regardless of size) that are in a riparian management zone, including those parts of the forested wetlands that lie within the harvest unit but outside of the riparian management zone. Mapping is not required if entry within the riparian management zone is not proposed as part of the harvest application.
(3) Landowners must make an approximate determination of the boundaries and map all forested wetlands 3 acres or more in size within the boundaries of the land to be covered by the application.
(4) All such mapping must be performed to the wetland delineation and mapping standards outlined in the board manual, section 8.
