EPA: Wetlands and People
Only recently have we begun to understand the importance of the functions that wetlands perform. Far from being useless, disease- ridden places, wetlands provide values that no other ecosystem can, including natural water quality improvement, flood protection, shoreline erosion control, opportunities for recreation and aesthetic appreciation, and natural products for our use at no cost. Wetlands can provide one or more of these functions. Protecting wetlands in turn can protect our safety and welfare. Learn more from the EPA here.
