Wetland Advisory Council

The Wetland Advisory Council (Council) was created in 2009 through amendments to Part 303, Wetlands Protection, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended, for the purpose of evaluating Michigan's wetland program and providing recommendations for improvement to the Governor, the Legislature and the department.  The amendments were contained in Public Act 120 of 2009 which became effective on November 6, 2009.  The council consists of 21 members representing a wide range of interests including regulated entities, citizen organizations, governmental agencies, academia, and the general public.  Section 30329 of Part 303 contains the list of issues the council must evaluate and report on.  There are two reporting periods for the council; the council's first report to the Governor, Legislature and department is due by October 1, 2010, the second report is due by August 15, 2012.  Section 30329, which creates the council, is repealed effective April 1, 2013.
