Navigating and Complying With Wetland Mitigation Rules and Other Regulatory Conservation Programs

Is your development project going to impact an “aquatic resource?” What can you do if you find out your project will require filling in wetlands or dredging a streambed?

For nearly 30 years, U.S. environmental policy has focused on wetland conservation and “no net loss.” This somewhat vague aspiration is now a federal rule, which states that impacts to “aquatic resources” greater than 0.1 acres in size require a permit and mitigation to compensate for authorized impacts. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) adopted a final rule on compensatory mitigation for losses of aquatic resources in 2008, providing specific mitigation requirements after advancing mitigation guidance for many decades in their regulatory programs.

This interactive session by expert speaker Tamar Cerafici will review the 2008 rule and recent developments that will affect how your project goes forward. You’ll learn about current reviews, and participate in a case study exercises that will help you explain and understand wetland mitigation properly.

You’ll learn new ways on how wetlands benefit ecosystems and add economic benefit to your projects, as well as and how to understand the wetland banking and credit programs.

Session Highlights:

  • Get updated knowledge of wetland mitigation rules.
  • Understand how wetland mitigation rules dovetail with the new Clean Water Rule and other regulatory schemes, including NEPA.
  • Explain compensation requirements and participate in agency reviews of your project.
  • Develop and explain your project’s wetland mitigation plan.
  • Understand how to bank wetlands or buy mitigation credits.
  • Regulatory framework for wetland mitigation, including climate change.

  • USACE permitting process and guidelines.
  • Wetland mitigation planning and design.
  • Regulatory review of mitigation plan.
