Note how the Bush administration is using rain gardens (out of context) to deceive his 'no net loss' wetland report to aid the developers at the expense of the major waterfowl production areas. The GW Bush administration is laughing how the Ducks Unlimited and NRA members were suckers to support his developer lobbies to destroy the wetlands.
The report measures strictly the acreage, not their quality.......
"The 'no net loss of wetlands' is largely due to the proliferation of ponds, lakes and other 'deepwater habitats,' as the report points out," she said. "These ponds include ornamental lakes for residential developments, stormwater retention ponds, wastewater treatment lagoons, aquaculture ponds and golf course water hazards."
