LAN Associates performed a wetland delineation, an NJDEP Letter of Interpretation application, and topographic/ bathymetric survey of a portion of Thompson Park and Marlu Lake. The objective was to establish the limits of regulated wetlands and transition areas for use in planning an alternative pedestrian route for an existing recreation trail.
The wetlands location information was used to plan a pedestrian walkway and bridge while minimizing impact to sensitive areas. The bridge spans a portion of Marlu Lake and provides pedestrians a safe alternative to traveling along the shoulder of a busy county road.
