      Wetlands soak up runoff from heavy rains and snow melts, providing natural flood control. Wetlands release stored flood waters to streams during droughts. Wetlands provide critical habitats for a major portion of the State's fish and wildlife, including endangered, commercial and recreational species. In , the MDEP began developing a biological monitoring and assessment protocols for freshwater wetlands. Wetland monitoring and assessment is integrated with the Biological Monitoring Program for rivers and streams, which is part of the MDEP’s overall w ater quality assessment program.

The Wetlands Map Viewer provides typical map.   Delaware is shaped by water. Wetlands cover 25 percent of the land area in the state and play an important role in supporting wildlife and buffering freshwater areas against salt-water from the ocean. Many of these fragile habitats, however, fall within the property of private landowners, making stewardship difficult without cooperation from the public.

      The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has the responsibility to perform Formal Wetland Delineations, provide training in wetland delineation and classification to regulatory agencies, provide technical assistance to other programs of the department, and ensure the consistent statewide use of the Florida Unified Wetland Delineation Methodology (Chapter , F.A.C.). The New Jersey freshwater wetlands maps provide guidance on where wetlands are found in New Jersey, but they are not the final word. Only an official determination from DEP, called a "letter of interpretation" can tell you for sure if you have freshwater wetlands on your property. An LOI verifies the presence, absence, or boundaries of.

The Freshwater Wetlands Act (Article 24 of the Environmental Conservation Law) requires DEC and the Adirondack Park Agency (for areas inside the Adirondack Park) to map the freshwater wetlands that are subject to jurisdiction of the law.

Wetlands Mapper. The Wetlands mapper is designed to deliver easy-to-use, map like views of America’s Wetland resources. It integrates digital map data along with other resource information to produce current information on the status, extent, characteristics and functions of wetlands, riparian, and deepwater habitats.

They provide habitat for fish, wildlife and plants - many of which have a commercial or recreational value - recharge groundwater, reduce flooding, provide clean drinking water, offer food and fiber, and support cultural and recreational activities.

These maps show only those wetlands that are currently mapped or officially proposed for addition to the wetland maps and currently regulated under the New York State Freshwater Wetlands Act outside the Adirondack Park. They do not show ALL wetlands that may be present in an area.

There may be additional wetlands on a site that may be protected. Contact the appropriate regional DEC office for general guidance and information, application forms, and review of wetland maps.

DEC also conducts wetland delineations. See the Contacts List for a county-by-county listing of phone numbers. Freshwater Wetlands Act This Act preserves, protects, and conserves those freshwater wetlands in the state.
