Wetland Restoration and Construction A Technical Guide 2nd Edition clearly explains how to select the best locations for building wetlands, the most effective techniques to use, what types of heavy equipment are needed, how to oversee construction, how to control nonnative invasive plants and establish native vegetation. Detailed examples show how to identify and then disable drainage systems installed hundreds of years ago that are the primary cause of wetland failure today. Clear, logical, step-by-step instructions explain how to design and build naturally appearing and functioning wetlands for wildlife and fish habitat, cleaning run off, replacing groundwater, and preventing flooding. Biebighauser answers the questions asked by thousands who have graduated from the hands-on wetland restoration workshops he has taught around the world. Of special interest to landowners are the pages showing how wetlands can be designed to benefit species of frogs, toads, turtles, waterfowl, and shorebirds. Sections describe how wetlands can be built at schools for science education, from mined lands, as a way to close old roads, and how wetlands not functioning as planned can be repaired. Containing over 650 color photographs and drawings, and 186- pages. The book is being used as the authoritative textbook on wetland construction techniques around the world. The pages show techniques involving the use of groundwater dams, aquatic-safe liners, restoring water from springs, and when to use the compacted-clay liner technique. The book is based on the author's experiences building over 1,800 wetlands in 22-States 2-Canadian Provinces, and in New Zealand.
