How can I find information about wetlands?
The primary EPA Web pages for information related to wetlands are located at the following URL:
This page, presented by the Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds, provides information about what wetlands are, why they need to be protected, how they can be protected, and what a person can do to protect wetlands.
The EPA Wetlands Helpline is a contractor-operated information and referral service which handles requests for information on wetlands regulation, legislation and policy pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, wetlands values and functions, and wetlands agricultural issues. The Helpline acts as a first point of contact for EPA's Wetlands Division, which is part of the Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds (OWOW). They may be reached at the following:
