(NRCS), formerly the Soil Conservation Service, and the Water
Quality Information Center of the National Agricultural Library
(NAL). The bibliography consists of more than 600 citations, of which 161

The bibliography was developed over a period of two years in response to concerns by private organizations, consultants, state and federal agencies that information about constructed wetlands was not readily available nor easily accessible.
These groups, realizing that the lack of a bibliography was a deterrent to having others know about the advantages and values of constructed wetlands, advocated and supported the idea of building a bibliography. Additionally, the groups recognized that a bibliography would help to advance the knowledge base and the technology of constructed wetlands.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service provided personnel to develop the bibliographic references and annotations, while the National Agricultural Library provided the computer expertise to establish the bibliographic format and to make the document available via Internet.
This bibliography is considered an "open file" and a "work- in-progress" and represents the efforts by the authors as of November 1995.
