Although wetlands have long been recognized for their flood control and water quality improvement functions, there is an increasing concern that unrestricted use of natural wetlands as receptacles for point and nonpoint sources of pollution, such as urban stormwater and other diffuse sources of runoff, will have an adverse effect on wetlands and wetland biota. As a result of this concern, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in cooperation with the State of Florida, the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Inc., and
the Association of State Wetland Managers, sponsored a workshop in January 1992 on wetlands and stormwater. The purpose of the workshop was to investigate various issues related to the management of stormwater and wetlands, explore potential options, and learn from the
experiences of the participants (wetland scientists, engineers, and environmental managers) about protection of natural wetlands that receive stormwater runoff.
