For example, some WRP projects may be included that are not situated to receive significant agricultural runoff (USDA NRCS, 2012, pers. ; MDE, 2012, pers. ). Most wetland conservation practices have broad objectives, and water quality improvement is often an assumed benefit of restoring wetland hydrology, rather than an explicit objective. Restoration calls for the “return of a wetland and its functions to a close approximation of its original condition as it existed prior to disturbance” (USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, 2014).

Prioritizing nutrient removal may conflict with other wetland functions, such as provision of wildlife habitat (Brinson and Eckles, 2011). For example, wetlands receiving high N and P inputs can become dominated by monocultures of Typha spp. or similarly aggressive plant species (Woo and Zedler, 2002). Thus, establishing objectives and evaluating wetland success will require consideration of the multiple services wetlands provide and balancing the demands of the TMDL with additional local, state, and regional priorities.
