Title Guidance on In-Lieu Fee Mitigation.
Publication Date Dec 2012
Media Count 14p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract The purpose of this guide is to describe how the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) will implement in-lieu fee (ILF) mitigation. This guide is meant, primarily, to provide assistance to qualified entities (e.g., local governments, tribes, non-profits) intending to establish ILF programs. Once established, ILF programs provide a potential option for permittees with unavoidable impacts to aquatic resources that need to satisfy requirements for compensatory mitigation. Aquatic resources include both the physical elements of the aquatic environment, such as wetlands, rivers, streams, lakes and also marine and estuarine systems (including bedlands, mudflats, tidelands and shorelands), as well as life forms such as amphibians, aquatic plants, fish, and shellfish that live within these aquatic environments.
