The creation or restoration of wetlands is often required as compensation for wetland losses permitted under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. Created and restored wetlands represent a range of conditions and situations. Despite the size, setting, or appearance the question remains -- How well do these created and restored wetlands replace the ecological functions of the wetlands that were destroyed. The question is central to the Mitigation Research Component. Although there are other forms of mitigation that could be considered in the program, the effectiveness of mitigation through the creation and restoration of wetlands is constantly increasing, while the science of wetland creation and restoration is considered to be in its infancy.
