Watershed Academy Webcast on March 18th on Watershed Approach Handbook

EPA is hosting a webcast on March 18th from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern on their recently released handbook, “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.  You may register for the webcast at www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts .
