One of the reasons for creating an Environmental Report for USDA Rural Development projects is to get clearance that your project is not distrubing a wetland. Wetlands are definded as a spot where water covers the soil and that water can be easily seen or it could be just under the surface. And it may only been visible during certain times of the year.

Different animals and plants may use these wetlands (again, at varying times of the year) to allow them to survive. So your wetland may not look too wet all year.

Our Environmental Reports for USDA Rural Development supply letters from the US Corps of Engineers that your project will not harm or negatively impact a wetland. The Corps is given the responsibility of ensuring our nation’s wetlands are protected from harmful development.
