Description
 
The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) has spent more than $4.2 billion on wetland restoration and protection over the last two decades. One challenge in allocating these funds is the lack of information on variations in wetland benefits and costs across the Nation. This report discusses the biophysical impacts of new wetlands for eight benefit categories: duck hunting, carbon sequestration, flood protection, nitrogen removal, special protection, open space, sediment removal, and groundwater recharge, as well as the value of these impacts for some categories. In addition, the report presents county-level estimates of the costs of restoring and preserving wetlands for some parts of the U.S. Findings underscore the need for additional information that may increase the number, accuracy, and spatial resolution of wetland benefit estimates. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
