ABSTRACT
Wet Area Mapping (WAM) data was acquired and assessed in the field to identify and inventory wetland and wet area sites to locate areas for wetland creation, enlargement, and enhancement. These sites could be used for potential future wetland compensation projects in the Sackville River Watershed (SRW). The inventory project was initiated as part of the compensation for damaged wetlands from new interchanges on Highway 101 and 102 and the new French high school in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The WAM data was found to be accurate in identifying wet areas in the surveyed portions of the SRW. Three of the SRW’s most urbanized sub-watersheds were field inventoried and revealed non-wetland wet areas as well as new, potential, and existing wetlands. These areas yielded the possibility for a total of 142,743 square meters of wetland creation, restoration, and enhancement. The remaining 10 sub-watersheds require six months of GIS work, field work, and report writing which could reveal approximately 100 additional wetland creation, enlargement, and enhancement sites.

ABSTRACT
Wet Area Mapping (WAM) data was acquired and assessed in the field to identify and inventory wetland and wet area sites to locate areas for wetland creation, enlargement,and enhancement. These sites could be used for potential future wetland compensation projects in the Sackville River Watershed (SRW). The inventory project was initiated as part of the compensation for damaged wetlands from new interchanges on Highway 101and 102 and the new French high school in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The WAM data was found to be accurate in identifying wet areas in the surveyed portions of theSRW. Three of the
SRW’s most urbanized sub
-watersheds were field inventoried and revealed non-wetland wet areas as well as new, potential, and existing wetlands. Theseareas yielded the possibility for a total of 142,743 square meters of wetland creation,restoration, and enhancement. The remaining 10 sub-watersheds require six months of GIS work, field work, and report writing which could reveal approximately 100additional wetland creation, enlargement, and enhancement sites.
