Partial infilling – Partial infilling causing conversion from an intertidal wetland

Select from the tabs below

Partial infilling of an intertidal wetland decreases the extent and/or depth of water in the wetland. Partial infilling prevents tidal inundation causing conversion to a palustrine wetland system. Complete infilling results in the loss of a wetland.

Applicable Wetland Habitat Hydrological Modification:

  • 'Modified – partial infilling – intertidal wetland with system change' (H2-M12-b)
