Summary

The Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) is a voluntary program administered by the NRCS. It provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners and Tribes to restore, protect, and enhance wetlands in exchange for retiring eligible land from agriculture. For a site to be a wetland eligible for restoration, it must be in a zone with sustained or frequent flooding for a period of 7 consecutive days on average at least once every 2 years (a value termed the 7MQ2). This study calculated the 7MQ2 flows for all the U.S. Geological Survey streamgages within the selected study reaches. These flows were related to the stage discharge tables for each streamgage and a corresponding elevation was determined. By use of the water-surface [...]

Purpose

This information is needed to expand the library of 7MQ2 potential wetland extent maps for selected stream reaches in Indiana using a documented method; to make existing and new maps in the library available through an on-line ESRI story Map; to update and document software for 7MQ2 map preparation; and to publish data calculation methods, along with new maps by USGS.
