Water Quality Standards for Wetlands

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 – 3:00 p.m. EST

PRESENTERS

  • Jeanne Christie and Jon Kusler, Association of State Wetland Managers
  • Jennifer Linn, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Length: 90 minutes

The Association of State Wetland Managers recently completed a two-year project on the development of water quality standards for wetlands, which included a comprehensive document “Wetland Water Quality Standards for States" availablehere. Characteristics of wetlands differ from lakes and rivers. Many of the parameters used to develop standards for flowing and deep water habitats are not applicable to wetlands, which often do not have standing water year-round. Jon Kusler and Jeanne Christie along with Jennifer Linn from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will:

  • summarize the project
  • review the typical framework for the development of water quality standards,
  • describe how these can be applied to address wetlands and
  • explore how the recently completed document and other resources available can be used by states and tribes to aid in development of water quality standards for wetlands.
