Abstract

The charges wetland advocates have long levied against the Galveston District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have recently drawn national attention. Critics say the district willfully misinterprets recent court rulings when making jurisdictional calls. Here, a Texas biologist gives an in-the-field perspective on the Galveston District's post-SWANCC jurisdictional practices.
