Wetland Monitoring and Assessment: A Technical Framework

The Clean Water Act (CWA) requires that states and tribes monitor and report on the condition of all waters of the United States, including jurisdictional wetlands. Scientists and resource managers rely upon wetland monitoring data to assess
wetland health and to guide decision-making. Understanding the causes and
effects of wetland impairment can help improve management decisions in
watersheds. Wetland monitoring is important to gauge the effectiveness of wetland restoration projects and to help measure the environmental health of watersheds.
