Local, state, and federal agencies, special interest groups, and individual landowners are undertaking wetland construction projects at a feverish pace to mitigate past and anticipated wetland losses. Considerable resources are being allocated to these projects. Information on engineering aspects of wetland design and construction is available; however, it is located in diverse sources and usually pertains to a specific project or wetlands. This paper summarizes the results of a project to identify and assimilate previous efforts related to wetlands engineering including efforts from these diverse fields. The paper identifies areas where the state-of-the-science is adequate and areas in which additional research is needed.
