- NC WAM was created to be used for project planning, alternatives analysis, compliance and enforcement, mitigation planning, and tracking functional replacement. The NC WAM was the culmination of a process begun in 2003 by an interagency team of federal and state agency staff, the N.C. Wetland Functional Assessment Team (WFAT). The goal was to develop an accurate, consistent, rapid, observational, and scientifically based field method to determine the level of function of a wetland relative to reference condition (where appropriate) for each of 16 North Carolina general wetland types.
