Goal: This Standard Team will create a new technical standard for use in verifying and documenting land features Silurian Bedrock/Karst Areas including depth to bedrock and closed depressions. The standard will establish procedures and standards for determining and mapping land features including valid methods and technologies (e.g. sonar, probes) for taking measurements, the scale for identifying field features, qualifications of persons who may collect data, and standards for mapping of land features. The standard will support implementation of s. NR 151.075 in designated areas where the bedrock consists of Silurian dolomite with a depth to bedrock of 20 feet or less.

This team will examine existing research, consider new technologies, propose criteria, and consider input from expert and public review.

Work Team Status: This team began meeting in February 2019. Meetings will be held approximately monthly until the standard is completed. More details on meetings, including agendas and minutes, will be available in the left sidebar as the work develops.
