From the Executive Summary: The U.S Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) needs a consistent, scientifically acceptable method to objectively classify and ascribe significance to aquatic ecosystems. This is necessary to maximize the environmental benefits of ecosystem restoration investments and ensure that the public interest is being served. This report summarizes the result of a workshop conducted to evaluate the Corps’ current approach to assessing technical significance of proposed restoration projects and recommends improved protocols.
