POVZETEK:The US Environmental Protection Agency' s (USEPA) Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds works to protect the nation's freshwater, estuarine, coastal and ocean ecosystems, including watersheds and wetlands. We regulate and monitor ocean dumping and vessel discharges, and reduce aquatic trash and marine debris. We protect water quality and habitats in 28 estuaries around the nation. We control polluted runoff and restore impaired waters. Although, USEPA is not the principle federal agency for managing and protecting the marine habitats surrounding our nations coasts, USEPA has significant responsibilities, investments and efforts to meet the goals of the US environmental laws with authority over US coastal and marine waters (Clean Water Act and the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act). The presentation will briefly describe USEPA's ocean and coastal priorities, programs and efforts. The presentation will also discuss recent significant environmental issues, such as the 2010 catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf Coast Region of the US and the efforts to address the damages of this event.
