The report on Wetland Water Quality Standards for States was prepared by the Association of State Wetland Managers as part of a broader project to help states adopt water quality standards for wetland ecosystems. It addresses the formulation and adoption of such standards. It provides the states with some examples of draft narrative standards in Appendices A and B.
This report was developed from the following materials:
In developing the materials in Appendices A and B, ASWM staff first prepared an outline of draft standards based upon the sources listed above. States and other interested parties were then asked to review the outline. Draft language for the standards were prepared based upon the outline. Much of this language has been taken from existing state and tribal statutes and regulations.
The overall report was drafted and states and other interested parties were asked to review and comment on the report. These comments were incorporated into the final report.
