    The Federal Wetland Permitting Program: Avoidance and Minimization Requirements 1 I. Introduction Introduction The Clean Water Act (CWA) prohibits the discharge of any dredged or fill material in “waters of the United States,”1 including wetlands, without a permit. Wetlands are regulated under CWA § . Mitigation plans, when clearly written, specify the area of wetland to be lost and the measures proposed for reducing the impact of that loss. The literature suggests that mitigation plans (particularly for older projects) are not always required for each permit (Table 6–1). On a national basis there is an anticipated gain of 78% in wetland.

Guidelines for Developing Freshwater Wetlands Mitigation Plans and Proposals 3 Important Note Mitigation of wetland impacts will usually require an area ratio that is greater than to ensure that there is a full replacement of both wetland area and functions.

The regulatory agencies are. The publication Guidelines for Developing Freshwater Wetlands Mitigation Plans and Proposals is obsolete and unavailable. Dana Mock at or @ wetlands. A mitigation plan must be submitted by the applicant and approved by DHEC OCRM for all projects which: (1) require a State CZC, and (2) impact federally defined jurisdictional freshwater wetlands in the coastal zone, unless DHEC OCRM determines that the impacts are so minimal as not to warrant mitigation.

Encourage a watershed approach to both the permitting process and mitigation requirements by promoting the development of comprehensive wetland management plans by federal, state, and local agencies.

The ultimate goals are improving the design and implementation of wetland compensatory mitigation and providing clear guidance to streamline the regulatory process when compensatory wetland mitigation is required.

We will be holding two focus group meetings to get public input on the mitigation guidelines. Riparian and seasonal or freshwater wetlands may require planting of natives and vigorous maintenance (i.e., weeding or herbicide application) for at least five years, if the soils or surrounding landscape is dominated by non-native vegetation.

The goals and objectives of the National Mitigation Action Plan were incorporated into the Final Compensatory Mitigation Rule. Development or alteration of California's coastal wetlands is primarily regulated by Section of the Coastal Act.

Among other things, Section (a) regulates development that results in the diking, filling, or dredging of open coastal waters, wetlands, estuaries, and lakes occurring in the coastal zone.

America's Wetlands. Wetlands are areas where water covers soil all or part of the time. Wetlands are important because they protect and improve water quality, provide fish and wildlife habitats, store floodwaters and maintain surface water flow during dry periods.

Complex or mixed wetlands also showed generally higher costs. Southeastern wetland types analyzed were predominantly freshwater, but they provide accurate guidelines for the region. In the southeastern U.S., the average wetland cost $23, (S.D. $11,) to construct and succeed.

The types of mitigation include wetland buffers, creation of wetlands, and restoration of existing wetlands, offsite mitigation, and mitigation banking.
