The various types of aquatic systems and their respective dynamic physical,
chemical, and biological processes associated with them are impacted by numerous
natural and human induced variables. Because we can potentially impact those
variables which are human induced on private lands, the Ecological Sciences
Division, with guidance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)
Aquatic Ecologist, is responsible for developing, coordinating, and directing
policy which is technically sound and ultimately serves to benefit our rivers,
streams, lakes, and wetlands.
Many of the NRCS programs are designed to improve water quality and quantity
and, overall, aquatic ecosystems. As an extension of this effort this web site
will provide access to documentation that outlines NRCS policy relative to
wetlands programs and riparian restoration initiatives, as well as links to
other programs which provide for the opportunity to improve aquatic ecosystems.
