Preface

This handbook is the end product for Work Unit 32758 under Task Area 5 of the Wetlands Research Program at the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). Task Area 5 was managed by Dr. Mary Landin, Environmental Laboratory (EL). Work Unit 32758 was executed by the Environmental Engineering Division, EL by Ms. Trudy Olin, Dr. Craig Fischenich, and Dr. Michael R. Palermo. Vegetation components of the handbook were coordinated by Dr. Mary C. Davis, Wetlands Ecology Group, EL. Hydrology information and techniques were coordinated by Dr. Lisa C. Roig, Hydraulics Laboratory (HL). Mr. Roy Leach, Geotechnical Laboratory (GL), coordinated sections of the handbook related to soils and geotechnical engineering. This handbook was prepared by a number of ERDC and contractor authors. Dr. Donald F. Hayes (University of Utah), Ms. Olin, Dr. Palermo, and Dr. Fischenich compiled the final handbook.

This handbook was reviewed by Mr. Tony Dardeau (EL), Mr. Sam Collinson (CECW-OR), Mr. Dick DiBuono (CECW-EH-W), Mr. Owen Dutt (CELMS-PD), Mr. Don Dunwoody (CWMRD-CO-R), Mr. Larry Oliver (CENED-PL-L), Mr. Jake Redlinger (CENPD-CO-O), Mr. Mike Lee (CEPOD-CO-O), Mr. Don Hill (CESAC-CO-P), Mr. Dwight Quarles (CESWF-OD), Mr. Bob Blama (CENAB), Mr. Mitch Isoe (CENCD-CO-O), Mr. Rodney Woods (CEORD-COOF), Mr. Donnie Kinard (CESAJ-CO-OR), Mr. Larry Vinzant (CESPK-CO-R), Mr. Rob Hauch (CESWG-CO-M), Mr. Bob Gunn (CEMVN-OD-G), Mr. Ron Ventola (CEMVN-OD-G), Mr. Neal McLellan (Hartman and Associates), Ms. Monica Chasten (CENAP-EN-H), and Mr. John McCormick (CENAP-EN-H). These reviewers provided valuable suggestions and contributed materially to the final product.

Mr. Norman Francingues provided overall supervision of this project as Chief, Environmental Engineering Division, EL. Dr. John Keeley, Director, EL, provided general supervision. Dr. Russell Theriot provided overall technical guidance as Program Manager, Wetlands Research Program.

At the time of publication of this handbook, Dr. Lewis E. Link was Acting Director of ERDC, and COL Robin R. Cababa, EN, was Commander.
