Wetland loss still outweighs gain despite 20 years of progress

"is seldom required for more than five years," he said. "But up to 20 years may be needed for some restored or created wetland sites to achieve functional goals."

The report outlined several recommendations for stopping the loss of wetlands including:

  • creating or restoring mitigation wetlands before filling the original wetland in;
  • choosing wetland restoration over creation;
  • designing and constructing individual mitigation sites to maximize the likelihood that they will make an ongoing contribution to the watershed; and
  • securing the replacement of lost wetland function by providing effective legal and financial assurances for long-term sustainability and also monitoring all compensatory wetland projects.
