The focus of this chapter is the rewetting of organic soils; restoration and other management practices on rewetted organic soils are not specifically addressed. Rehabilitation as an activity separate from rewetting is not covered by this chapter. This chapter does not provide default guidance for the management of undrained inland organic soils or for restoration that does not necessitate rewetting.
