Wetlands designations in our Community

The Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for identifying and mapping all wetland areas in the United States. There is a scalable / searchable map of the entire National Wetlands Inventory located at the government site By zooming in to our neighborhood, you can see that there are 4 designated wetland areas (a Freshwater Emergent Wetland habitat located SE of our pond, and 3 other separate habitats located just south of the southernmost path area) that are partially or wholly contained on SMHOA property, as well as a Riparian wetland area that touches private properties on the NW side of Alpine Laurel. These are all subject to the protections and restrictions described by their federal designations.
