New York State Salt Marsh Restoration And Monitoring Guidelines

Salt Marsh

The New York State Salt Marsh Restoration and Monitoring Guidelines were developed jointly by the Department of State and the Department of Environmental Conservation to assist local governments in developing and monitoring salt marsh restoration projects. Primary causes of salt marsh degradation and corresponding methods for their remediation are characterized to assist in identifying potential salt marsh restoration projects and developing conceptual plans. The document also provides a standard monitoring protocol to increase data collection and improve project evaluation, helping to ensure the success of state funded habitat restoration projects.

The New York State Salt Marsh Restoration and Monitoring Guidelines (2400 Kb pdf) were prepared, in part, under a National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration Coastal Services Center Coastal Management Fellowship conducted at the Department of State during 1997-1999. Additional financial assistance was provided under the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended, through a federal grant from the United States Department of Commerce, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
