Mr. Nedland has 3.5 years experience
in the ecological field, with an emphasis in wetland ecology. This experience has allowed him
to work on several wetland related projects, including wetland delineation, restoration,
permitting, and mitigation. In addition to his wetland related work, Mr. Nedland has helped
conduct large scale lake studies, written wildlife management plans, and performed various
flora and fauna surveys. The experience and knowledge gained by Mr. Nedland has given him a
good rapport with local WDNR and USACE personnel. Some of the more interesting jobs he has
worked on are listed below under Relevant Projects.

Proposed Railroad Corridor – Marathon County, WI
were delineated to help identify the most practical railroad layout for a proposed railroad
spur located in Marathon County, Wisconsin. This project required working cooperatively with
both a railroad engineer as well as a civil/land surveying firm.
Bald Eagle and
Osprey Management Plans – Several Locations in Northern Wisconsin
As part of the process
required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), bald eagle/osprey management plans

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), a threatened and endangered species management
plan was developed for a dam operator in Northern Wisconsin. Species covered under the
management plan included bald eagle, osprey, timber wolf, and wood turtle.
Survey – Brown County, WI
An amphibian survey was conducted for a client to help determine
the functionality of several small ephemeral wetlands located in an approximate 60 acre woodlot
in Brown County, WI. Results of the survey were used to determine which wetlands had the
highest functional values, which in turn helped guide the planning process for future
development of the site.
Wetland Mitigation – Brown County, WI
The preparation of
a wetland mitigation plan was completed for a client in Brown County, Wisconsin. Duties
included site evaluation, wetland design, and development of a monitoring
Powerline Easement Corridor Delineations – Throughout eastern and central
Wetland delineations were conducted within existing and proposed powerline
easements. These delineations were conducted to document wetland impacts that would occur due
to power pole placement and power pole repair.
Aquatic Plant Surveys – Throughout
Helped conduct aquatic plant surveys on several lakes throughout Wisconsin. Data
collected during these surveys was used to develop Comprehensive Lake Management Plans for
various Lake Associations.
Groundwater Monitoring – Brown County, WI
monitoring wells were used to determine whether the wetland hydrology parameter was present at
various sites, including wetland restorations and areas that had undergone hydrologic
alteration. Data collected at these sites was used to fulfill agency requirements or to
validate wetland delineations.
Proposed Quarry Expansion – Marathon County,
Wetlands were delineated to assist in the planning process for a proposed quarry
expansion. Results of the delineation were used to plan the future layout of the quarry, and
to obtain necessary permits.
