How to use a wetland mitigation bank to compensate for wetland impacts
If your development project impacts wetlands and is within a wetland mitigation bank’s (bank) service area, you may propose to use the bank as compensation. The agency(ies) permitting your impacts will usually request a mitigation plan to show that you will be able to adequately compensate for the impacts. As the permittee, you would submit a bank use plan to the permitting agency(ies). The permitting agency(ies) will review the submittal and make the determination whether the use of that bank is appropriate or not.
