Puerto Rico Will Create Task Force to Improve Wetlands

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Puerto Rico Land Authority have reached a settlement that requires the creation of a task force to identify, monitor and protect wetlands in Puerto Rico in order to resolve a 2007 EPA complaint over Clean Water Act violations.
According to the settlement, the Puerto Rico Land Authority will pay a $25,000 penalty and set up a $100,000 interest-bearing account, which will be used to establish a wetlands management program.
