Heartland Ecological Group, Inc. is happy to announce that Eric Parker, a Principal Scientist at Heartland, has achieved “Assured Wetland Delineator” status under the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Wetland Delineation Assurance Program. Eric has completed thousands of wetland delineations over the last 30+ years in Wisconsin and throughout the U.S. Eric is based in Heartland’s Racine County satellite office and is well positioned to continue servicing his clients in Southeastern Wisconsin. With the addition of Eric into the wetland assurance program, Heartland has assured wetland delineators in the Milwaukee and Madison areas which will further streamline the wetland identification and regulatory process for our clients.
March 28, 2018 - Governor Walker has signed into law Amendment 3 to Assembly Bill 547 now known as WIsconsin Act 183. This new law creates additional exemptions for artificial wetlands and certain nonfederal wetlands. There are also components of Act 183 that modify some requirements for wetland boundary delineations and DNR confirmations; creates wetland mitigation-related grant programs; and allows DNR to assume authority over the federal wetland program if the U.S. EPA agrees to delegate such authority to the State.
