EPA has announced a webcast on March 18 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern on a recently released handbook funded by the EPA called "Watershed Approach Handbook: Improving Benefits Associated with Wetland and Stream Restoration and Protection Projects." The webcast will give listeners a broad overview of the handbook, which was developed to advance the use of a "watershed approach" in the selection, design, and siting of wetland and stream restoration and protection projects, including projects required by compensatory mitigation. The handbook provides a framework for how to carry out the watershed approach, defines a range of different approaches, and offers examples of how these approaches have been applied across the country. The webcast will also feature a case study from Wisconsin. Download the Handbook here. Visit EPA's Watershed Academy here. Register for the Webcast here.
