ELI is hosting a series of webinars on the policy, practice, and science of stream compensatory mitigation. Webinar topics are based on the findings and recommendations of the 2017 report Stream Mitigation: Science, Policy, and Practice and selected in coordination with an Advisory Committee of stream mitigation experts. The series will cover a range of issues from assessing stream functions and conditions to restoration approaches and long-term success of compensation projects. This ten-part series is funded by an EPA Wetland Program Development Grant.
Stream Compensatory Mitigation Webinar Series: Stream Restoration for Multiple Purposes
Stream compensatory mitigation projects offset permitted impacts to streams and can also yield significant ecologic benefits. Projects that leverage or integrate other programs can thus help to achieve other programmatic goals. This webinar will discuss stream restoration for multiple purposes, including endangered species conservation, water quality improvement goals, and natural resources damages restoration.
