GLIN==> Corps Issues Final Estuary Habitat Restoration Strategy



Corps Issues Final Estuary Habitat Restoration Strategy
The Corps of Engineers on behalf of the interagency Estuary Habitat
Restoration Council has published the final Estuary Habitat Restoration
Strategy (67 Fed. Reg., p. 71942, December 3, 2002)
http://www.usace.army.mil/civilworks/cecwp/estuary_act/3dec02-final.pdf. The
goal of the strategy is restoration of 1,000,000 acres of estuary habitat by
the year 2010. The comments on the draft version, published in May, were
reviewed and there was not a strong consensus among the commentors in
support of major changes to the draft strategy. Several minor changes have
been made to clarify the intent of the Council and correct any errors in the
strategy. Also, a new section was added to recognize the importance of
innovative technology and the role of the National Estuarine Research
Reserve System (NERRS).
