A wetland is defined by three criteria: 1) It must have mostly hydric soils; 2) it must be generally inundated or saturated above or below the surface, and 3) It must support a prevalence of vegetation adapted to wet soil conditions. Wetlands have many benefits including erosion and flood control, improve groundwater recharge, protecting water quality, providing habitat, and more. More information about wetlands can be found on our website under "Help for Landowners"
