Description :
Mitigation wetlands constructed in southeastern Virginia during the past decade have experienced problems with inappropriate water levels, excessive erosion and sedimentation, low levels of soil organic matter, overly compacted substrates, and sulfidic soils. Most of these problems can be recognized in the future with adequate planning that permits sufficient study of the geomorphic and hydrologic processes active at the mitigation site, and if greater attention is given to the history of geomorphic processes that created natural wetlands in that area.
