This document is intended as a technical guide for Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404 permit
applicants preparing compensatory mitigation plans. Compensatory mitigation is required to offset impacts that cannot be avoided and minimized to the extent practicable. The purpose of this document is to identify the types and extent of information that agency personnel need to assess the likelihood of success of a mitigation proposal. Success is generally defined as: a healthy sustainable wetland/water
that – to the extent practicable – compensates for the lost functions of the impacted water in an
appropriate landscape/watershed position.
