ENFORCING COMPLIANCE

Possibly, the most important action individuals may take is to actively participate in the wetland regulatory process. One way this may be done is by staying aware of local wetland issues and commenting on individual Section 404 permits as they become available for public review. Another way individuals may participate is by being on the alert for possible illegal fill or draining activities in wetlands and reporting them to the USEPA or local USACE or USDA/NRCS District Offices. The contact information for USEPA Region 5 office as well as the regulatory branches of each of the USACE districts and USDA/NRCS extension offices in Illinois can all be found in the attached presentation materials.
