St. Paul District Corps of Engineers Regulatory Branch Guidance - Target Hydrology and Performance Standards for Compensatory Mitigation Sites
SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE: This guidance document is an update and expansion of previous guidance on this topic first developed in 2005 (Version 1.0) and updated most recently in 2014 (Version 5.0).
