WETLANDS (ADID) --
Advance Identification (ADID) Wetlands in Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties, Indiana, 2001 (1:24,000)
Shows wetlands that were included in an Advance Identification (ADID) of Wetlands study in Lake, Porter, and LaPorte Counties, Indiana. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) sponsors ADIDs with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) and other partners in areas where development, mining, agricultural, or other pressures threaten high quality or locally critical wetlands with destruction or deterioration. The data were designed to provide landscape-level information on critical wetlands in advance of development pressure so that planners, regulators, developers, landowners, and others would consider the information when making land-use decisions. The basic purpose of the study is to further the protection of wetlands in the region.
In addition to unique site-identification numbers, attributes include wetland categories, restoration potential, recommended management activities, threats, ownership, and other information.
