    Abstract: "A research program to investigate the viability of using urban freshwater wetlands for stormwater management and nonpoint pollution control. Resource Planning Section, King County Department of Planning and Community Development, WA., July 1, 1986. Washington State Department of Ecology, WDOE Project Number G0086039, 16 pages. A review of the literature revealed little information in the long-term effects of using freshwater wetlands for urban stormwater management and nonpoint pollution control. This is especially true for freshwater wetlands in the Pacific Northwest. King County began a study in 1986 to obtain sound scientific data for management decisions regarding freshwater wetlands. This Research Program is one of three products resulting from the first phase of that study. A research technical advisory committee was formed to help formulate a research design that will answer many of the long-term questions regarding the use of wetlands for urban surface water management. A series of research questions were formulated, and a research methodology prepared to answer those questions according to five subject areas: biology, sediments and soils, water quality, groundwater, and hydrology."
