Duluth Area Wetlands Inventory
Wetlands are an important part of Duluth’s
natural ("green") infrastructure, and a wetlands inventory is key information
to be incorporated into the City’s
Comprehensive Plan. Mapping wetlands within whole watersheds, even when
those watersheds extend outside the City Limits,
allowed a more comprehensive evaluation of their water quality and flood protection
functions. This differed from the mapping
of forests that was done, which, with a few exceptions, only mapped areas
within the City limits.
