How to use a wetland mitigation bank to compensate for wetland impacts

If your project impacts wetlands and is within a wetland mitigation bank’s (bank) service area, you may propose to use the bank for mitigation. The agency permitting your impact will then make the determination whether the use of that bank is appropriate. We have banks located across the state of Washington. The banks listed below are certified by Ecology.

Upcoming Training

We offer a training course on How to Use Wetland Bank Credits for Mitigation through the Coastal Training Program

This training provides information and tools for project applicants who are proposing the use of bank credits to mitigate for unavoidable wetland impacts. Information will also be covered that address questions that permitters and other decision-makers may have when considering these types of applications.

The training addresses these and other questions:

  • How does wetland mitigation banking work?
  • What is a wetland mitigation bank credit?
  • How can I propose to use a bank credit to compensate for unavoidable impacts?
  • How are local governments involved in the wetland banking process?
  • What is the decision process when mitigation bank credits are used to mitigate impacts under the Clean Water Act (Section 404/401)?

We have no classes scheduled at this time.
