“The National Wetlands Coalition (‘Coalition’) is a geographically and economically diverse group of private and public sector entities that have joined together to advocate a balanced federal policy for conserving and regulating the Nation’s wetlands. Members of the Coalition own or manage wetlands and other ‘waters of the United States’ that are subject to federal jurisdiction under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. Coalition members include local governments, ports, water agencies, the development community, agriculture groups, electric utilities, oil and gas pipelines and producers, the mining industry, banks, environmental and engineering consulting firms, and Native American groups. The Coalition is governed by a Board of Directors that is representative of the full Coalition membership.” (; accessed 3/28/05)

According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, NWC opposes U.S. wetlands policy as "burdensome and ineffective regulation of private property.” Membership to the organization includes oil companies and the National Association of Homebuilders.
