The Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and NOAA Coastal Services Center (NOAA, CSC), partnered with the Sheboygan County Planning Office and the City of Plymouth to identify priority locations for wetland restoration that have the potential to provide both nutrient capture and flood abatement benefits within the Mullet watershed. This framework was based on the multi-objective management (MOM) approach to coastal landuse planning and management outlined in the ASFPM's No Adverse Impact (NAI) Toolkit. NAI is an approach to management that emphasizes the "do no harm" principle, by encouraging natural resource managers to anticipate both beneficial and adverse impacts of any management strategy (Mauriello et al., 2007). This report provides guidance on how others within the region can replicate a similar multi-beneficial functional assessment.
