  • Oregon Wetland Plan receives EPA approval, is first in region
    Oregon wetland
    Oregon's recently developed Wetland Program Plan (WPP) is designed to focus wetland protection and restoration work in a strategic way, and communicate long- and short-term objectives to the Environmental Protection Agency and others. The plan was developed under a 2010 EPA development grant, and was approved for the 2011-2016 time period. It is the first such plan to be approved in EPA Region 10.

    While WPPs are not required, the EPA strongly encourages states and tribes to complete them to better achieve wetland and other aquatic resource goals. The plans are public documents that help partner organizations stay informed and connected to wetland planning.
