Abstract: This technical note provides guidance for describing soils as part of the site evaluation and soil survey as an aid to identify wetland soils, to delineate wetland areas, and to determine construction properties required for wetland engineering. It provides guidance on how to describe wetland soils by field expedient and laboratory procedures. A field expedient description is useful to obtain a preliminary identification of soils and to determine preliminary engineering properties. Laboratory procedures accurately identify the soils and provide the best evaluation of engineering properties from soil description data. Evaluation of engineering properties is not within the scope of this technical note. The information supplements the design sequence contained in WRP TechnicaI Note WG-RS-3.1.
