Abstract

This document provides guidance on the use of vegetated buffers as a component of compensatory mitigation plans undertaken to meet permit requirements under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and/or Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899. The permit program requires appropriate and practicable compensatory mitigation to offset unavoidable impacts to aquatic resources by replacing aquatic resource functions lost as a result of activities authorized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps).
