Description In the 1970s, Congress and the Washington State
Legislature adopted clean water laws to protect the
health of people, communities and the environment.
Our clean water laws recognize the critical role of
wetlands – marshes, bogs and similar places – and
guide public agencies and private landowners as we
work to preserve, protect, and restore them.

This publication explains how the Department of Ecology is using mitigation to minimize damage to wetlands and offset the losses when damage is unavoidable.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
