PACE is providing wetland mitigation and reporting services for two mitigation wetland sites at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, WA. Field monitoring complies with King County, Washington Department of Ecology, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits and agreements, and is per guidelines established in the Tahoma National Cemetery Facility Management Plan to ensure that the site meets the mitigation project targets. The site will be monitored for a period of at least 10 years, beginning with year 2 (2015) and occurring in years 3, 5, 7, and 10. Monitoring events will occur in midwinter during the rainy season, in midspring during the growing season, and in late summer. Monitoring reports will be prepared for each year and will provide information on site conditions at the time of monitoring, goals and objectives, methods used to monitor the mitigation sites, monitoring results, plant survival and general site observations, and management recommendations. Field staff will meet with cemetery maintenance staff as needed to coordinate necessary maintenance activities.
