Abstract
Wetlands have been a minor element in EPA's water quality regulatory frame but their importance will expand following their mandatory inclusion into Waters of the States in 1993 (EPA 1990). They have historically been regulated under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, and although water quality is an issue in 404 decisions, it has not been the driving variable. The presentation is based on the premise that a range of criteria are necessary to protect wetland ecological integrity from a range of stressors. The author will discuss possible protective criteria, some in use in existing regulatory programs and others under development. The order of presentation is biological, aquatic life, hydrologic, sediments and wildlife criteria. In the conclusion, the author briefly discusses using landscape approaches to extrapolate criteria to spatial scales beyond the traditional site-specific analysis used in most water quality decisions.
