Welcome to the ODOT Wetlands Page, presented by the Wetlands Program. The
Wetlands Program is responsible for department compliance with the Oregon
Removal-Fill Law as well as section 404 of the Federal Clean Water Act. The
goal of the Wetlands Program is to ensure that wetland and water resources are
accurately identified during project development and that appropriate measures
are taken to avoid and minimize impacts whenever feasible. Operated out of Salem, the Wetlands
Program tracks reports submitted to regulatory agencies by wetland specialists and
permit coordinators located in all of ODOT's 5 Regions. Additionally, the
Program Coordinator tracks data and ensures that standards and procedures are
followed to adequately document findings.
This website contains standards for completing various wetland and
waters reports. It also provides guidance for completing wetland and waters related
tasks- scoping, delineations, functional assessments, avoidance-minimization
and alternatives analysis, impact assessments, mitigating actions, compensatory
mitigation plans and monitoring reports.
