Show 3 Riparian/Wetland Condition Assessment Qualitative observations of hydrology, vegetation, and erosion/deposition (soils) attributes (see pg. 63 of protocol). 17 physical attributes are assessed on the Lotic form and 20 on the Lentic form. They are answered in a Yes/No/Not Applicable format. Notes addressing each attribute can be included on the form. At the end of the form a summary rating for the stream or wetland is given as Proper Functioning, Functioning at-Risk, or Non Functioning. If Functioning at-Risk, an apparent trend assessed as Upward, Downward or not Apparent. The individual technical references can be used to identify all of the attributes. Note: For PFC assessments there are two technical references. One is for Lotic (moving water) riparian areas and the other is for Lentic (standing water or wetland) riparian areas.
