‘Islands of moisture’

Groups work to restore wildlife protection in wetlands

The groups support federal legislation, S.787, which was introduced last year to clarify the Corps role in enforcing the Clean Water Act, said Jim Murphy of the National Wildlife Federation.

The bill, as introduced, would give the Corps permit authority over habitats like those of concern to the wildlife groups.

“The legislation would get regulation back to where it was,” said Steve Moyer of Trout Unlimited.
