Stream Compensatory Mitigation Webinar Series: Status of Stream Compensatory Mitigation

Stream compensation is on the rise. The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) reported that in 2005, 12 percent of all approved mitigation banks provided stream credits. By the end of 2014, 22 percent of all approved mitigation banks had stream credits (USACE, Institute for Water Resources, 2015). The science of stream restoration is also rapidly evolving, as is the development of state and Corps policies governing stream assessment and compensation requirements. Several states have formalized stream mitigation programs, the majority of which were initiated after the Corps and EPA issued regulations in 2008, and at least 32 stream mitigation guidance documents have been developed by states and Corps districts across the country. This webinar will review the current status of stream compensatory mitigation policy and practice throughout the United States. Please join us as we kick off a 10-part Stream Compensatory Mitigation Webinar Series.
