Are they truely a wetland or a depression that holds some water? Cattails? Area size? Have you had a determination done? I am assuming the NRCS map shows it as a wetland but that does not mean it is.

Edit: a typical right of way is 30 ft. from center of road but with owner permission back sloping can be done out to 45ft. if this is along a road. Sometimes county or twp, can help with water maintenance because of road damage.

Mostly it is areas that are seeded but may flood out after a big rain. Drainage often slows down a lot after some downstream drains over grow. Sometimes seeding through ditches slows things down as well.
There are also some areas with cattails.
We have only asked for a NRCS wetlands determination on three quarters for drain tile. 2/2 great news, still waiting on 1.
Just wondering if it is economically feasible to drain a true wetland.
I would think a wetland acre should be cheaper to mitigate here as opposed to the land of milk and honey.
Thank you.
