Wetlands, often considered wastelands in the past, were officially recognized just in the last fifty years through the establishment of various governmental laws and regulations to protect them for their ecological importance. The federal government gradually determined that there was a need to identify them in order to regulate them. With some wetlands only seasonal, identification through vegetation alone was insufficient for establishing guidelines and regulations.
