Notice of New Guidance - Alternative Method for Determining Wetland Mitigation Credit Potential for Hydrologic Restorations on Cultivated Fields in Minnesota

Published May 7, 2019

PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE:  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Paul District Regulatory Branch (Corps) and Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) have jointly developed a standardized method for determining credit potential associated with proposed wetland hydrology restorations in cultivated fields that are subject to annual disturbances due to cultivation. This method can be applied to proposed permittee-responsible, bank, or in-lieu fee wetland restoration projects seeking approval under either the Minnesota Wetland Conservation Act (WCA) or the Federal Mitigation Rule (33 CFR Part 332)
