This Automated Wetland Determination Data Form spreadsheet using Microsoft Excel will automatically generate wetland hydrology, hydrophytic vegetation, and hydric soil indicators using raw data input by the user. The information contained in the spreadsheet is from the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Northcentral and Northeast Region and the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Midwest Region. Once data is entered and any editing is completed, the form can be printed and it looks almost exactly like the form included in the Regional Supplement (see Disclaimer below). The spreadsheet is designed to be filled out as a simple form; proficiency in Excel is not required.
The Detroit District Regulatory Office uses the spreadsheet to produce “data-entered” copies of the wetland determination data form in Appendix C in the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual: Northcentral and Northeast Region, Version 2.0, January 2012 (NCNE Supplement) and the Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual: Midwest Region, Version 2.0, August 2010 (Midwest Supplement). The Detroit District Regulatory Office’s spreadsheet, and the resulting data sheet, includes the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s Field Indicators of Hydric Soils version 7.0 2015 Errata (http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/nrcs142p2_051293.docx), which is not part of the current NCNE or Midwest Supplement data form. We are obliged to inform other users that the spreadsheet was developed for use within the Detroit District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is not intended nor approved as an official data entry tool/document of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The spreadsheet is provided “as is”, with no guarantees, assurances or warranties of any kind, either express or implied, as to it accuracy, appropriateness, completeness, fitness or legal effect for any particular purpose and should be understood that usage is not endorsed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is fully “at your own risk”.
