Wetlands and Aquatic Ecosystem

Wetlands, watersheds, and coastlines are vital parts of the natural ecosystem and require careful planning to avoid, minimize, and mitigate damage to them as a result of transportation projects. FHWA provides information and guidance to Federal, State, and local agencies in order to preserve the function and integrity of the Nation's wetlands and aquatic ecosystems.
