Wetland Policy Timeline
A bit of home news, along with announcing a new resource. I've finally set up the Wetlands Policy Timeline on my academic website: this is something I've been compiling since my time at EPA, and eventually nearly all the entries will link to original documents (regulations, statutes, court opinions, etc.). The idea is to document the development of wetland science, policy, culture, legislation, regulation, jurisprudence in American life from, essentially, the Swamp Lands Acts onwards. It's profoundly unfinished at the moment, and only goes up through about 2001, but is particularly rich in the "golden age" of wetland policy from 1986-1991. Keep an eye on it as links are attached over the next few months!
