For impacts to isolated Category 1 wetlands of any size and isolated Category 2 wetlands authorized under a level 1 review, the service area includes the entire Ohio portion of the Corps District where impacts are located(ORC §6111.022);
For impacts to isolated Category 2 wetlands greater than 0.5 acre and isolated Category 3 wetlands of any size, the service area will encompass the 6-digit HUC service areas defined above for jurisdictional waters.
