U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – February 2012
EPA's Office of Water has released its draft National Water Program Guidance for FY2013. Section 3 of the guidance deals heavily with wetlands and coastal waters. This National Water Program Guidance (Guidance) for fiscal year (FY) 2013 describes how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), states, territories, and tribal governments will work together to protect and improve the quality of the Nation's waters, including wetlands, and ensure safe drinking water. Within EPA, the Office of Water (OW) oversees the delivery of the national water programs, while the regional offices work with states, tribes, territories, and others to implement these programs and other supporting efforts.
