E-M:/ wetland enforcement to be toughened

TRAVERSE CITY -- Up to $500,000 in federal money is expected to beef up protection of Michigan wetlands next year.
Part of the cash will pay for up to four new Department of Environmental Quality inspectors devoted solely to scrutiny and enforcement of development projects where wetlands are filled, drained or otherwise altered, DEQ Director Steve Chester said Friday.
