Abstract or Summary
  • This document partially addresses the Wetlands component of San Juan County’s Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO). Drawing from a foundation in best available science, it describes important functions performed by the County's wetlands, effects of various activities on those functions, and strategies for protecting wetland functions from impacting activities, with an emphasis on surrounding wetlands with buffers of natural vegetation tailored to individual site characteristics. To support the recommendations, existing wetland maps were refined using LiDAR and color orthophotos, and a large statistical sample of the County's wetlands were visited and assessed. Dominant plants in each wetland were identified and spatial data addressing key resource themes were compiled and analyzed at multiple scales.
