This article presents the federal remedies available to ameliorate the damage done to the environment by illegal dredge and fill operations. The author examines statutory and case law, and concludes that the federal agencies and courts have the power to order developers to restore wetlands which have been dredged and filled without authorization, and that restoration can be an effective tool for protecting our nation's wetland areas.
