U.S. Army Corps and EPA Propose New Regulations for Wetland Mitigation

Thinking Forward
Categorized Under: Environment



Since the late 1970s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has been requiring mitigation for impacts to wetlands and other waters of the United States through its permitting program. Over the years, the Corps and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which oversees the Corps’ administration of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, developed a number of mitigation policies and guidance documents for the 38 Corps district offices that actually issue the permits.
Recently, the effectiveness of the Corps' national mitigation policies has come under considerable scrutiny.
