Future Management Strategies for State Maintained Wetlands

  • Hopwood, Theodore (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


KYTC has property containing wetlands that were either created or purchased as compensation for other wetland takings (mitigation). After the Corps of Engineers (CaE) 5-year mandatory monitoring/ preservation period, those wetlands require continued maintenance to prevent problems such as flooding of adjacent properties and mosquito control. Other issues requiring on-going KYTC wetlands management/maintenance include: weir control to maintain proper water levels, beaver activities, fence maintenance, trespass prevention, and vegetation control. Additionally, wetlands have been naturally established along some KYTC rights-of-way as a consequence of the road building. Maintenance activities in those areas are also problematic.
