The Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Wetlands Protection is committed to protecting wetlands: by deve- loping a national strategy, programs and regulations to control discharges of dredged and fill material into wetlands and other national waters; by ensuring adequate consideration of wetland functions and values in Agency actions ?Dockey= NEW DELHI: With wetland ecosystems across the country facing increasing threat of extinction, the National Green Tribunal today directed all state governments and Union Territories to identify and notify wetlands in at least five to ten districts under their jurisdiction. A bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar said while smaller states may go for less number of districts (for example 5
Wetlands make up about 6 percent of the world's surface and are places where land and water meet and mingle. They include, fens, marshes, peatlands, swamps, river bottom lands, and tidal flats. In their untouched state, wetlands have positive values such as ameliorating flooding, protecting coasts, removal of toxic wastes, and as wildlife :// Section of the U.S. Clean Water Act includes most wetlands in its jurisdiction and requires wetland mitigation to compensate for permitted wetland losses. These mitigation wetlands can provide ecosystem services similar to original wetlands if properly constructed. Improvement of wetland monitoring requirements coupled with economic assessment is critical for effective implementation of
Wetlands perform a range of key ecological functions including flood protection (Adusumilli, ), ground-water recharge (Katara and Dev, ), and water purification (Palma et al., ;Yu et A wetland is a distinct ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally, where oxygen-free processes prevail. The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric ds play a number of functions, including water purification, water storage, processing

Definition - The Wetlands Protection Subdistrict for Inland Wetlands includes areas enclosed by the normal high water mark of flowing waters, stream channels, standing waters, and areas encompassing 10 acres or more in size identified by LURC as inland wetlands.

Wetlands are areas where water covers soil all or part of the time. Wetlands are important because they protect and improve water quality, provide fish and wildlife habitats, store floodwaters and Wetlands possess three essential characteristics: (1) hydrophytic vegeta- tion, (2) hydric soils, and (3) wetland hydrology, which is the driving force creating all wetlands.

The Agency also administers the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Executive Law, Arti Section et seq.) which also defines wetlands and provides for their protection. Wetlands within Organic Soil Wetlands: Generally these wetlands are referred to as "peatlands" in recognition of their common ability to form peat (organic soil produced by the accumulation of plant material).

Wetlands are areas where water covers the soil, or is present either at or near the surface of the soil all year or for varying periods of time during the year, including during the growing season. Water saturation (hydrology) largely determines how the soil develops and the types of plant and animal communities living in and on the :// Vermont contains a great diversity of wetlands, ranging from open water habitats to rich forested swamps.
Wetlands vary because of differences in hydrology, parent soil material, historical land use, topography and other factors.

Level 1, "landscape assessment" relies on coarse, landscape scale inventory information, typically gathered through remote sensing and preferably stored in, or convertible to, a geographic information system (GIS) format.
