E-M:/ save wetlands, protect water

Enviro-Mich message from "Dave Dempsey" <davedem@hotmail.com>

Nice letter to the editor in the Free Press today from Michigan staff of the 
Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:

"We already have at our disposal one of our most efficient and 
cost-effective stormwater management tools, albeit in an ever-diminishing 
condition. Wetlands are certainly one of the "solutions that trap rain water 
and then release it gradually, rather than simply funneling it into the 
nearest creek, storm drain or sewer."
