In June 1998, the New England Biological Assessment of Wetlands Workgroup (NEBAWWG) was formed. This group, acting in conjunction with the national Biological Assessment of Wetlands Workgroup (BAWWG), has been testing wetland assessment techniques in the Northeast. The workgroup is composed of state and federal wetlands managers and scientists. NEIWPCC has supported NEBAWWG since its inception by coordinating meetings and workshops on wetland assessment and supporting the attendance of state staff at regional and national meetings.
NEBAWWG represent federal and state regulatory personnel and scientists from the following states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. This focused membership includes both users and developers of monitoring and assessment tools.
