Abstract

Attention to the federal compensatory mitigation program has been growing over the years and became heightened after the release of a National Academy of Sciences 2001 report evaluating the success of compensatory mitigation to achieve no net loss of function of the nation’s wetland resources. The report concluded that “the goal of no net loss of wetlands is not being met for wetland functions by the mitigation program, despite progress in the last 20 years,” and was accompanied by findings and recommended measures to improve compensatory mitigation. One such measure recommended that clearly specified performance standards be adopted to enhance mitigation effectiveness.
