Wetlands Challenges and Use of Mitigation Bank Credits

Wetlands have presented a liability and construction timing risk to companies, real estate developers, oil and gas companies and other parties constructing buildings, roads, pipelines, oil and gas exploration, and production activities, among many others. Failure to understand and manage these issues had resulted in fines, litigation and extensive delays in construction. Planning ahead, identifying wetlands, and developing a mitigation strategy before moving dirt is critical to the success of projects involving or affecting wetlands. This OnDemand Webinar will provide the background and guide to the use of wetlands mitigation credits as a means of addressing the legal and ecological issues arising from filling or disturbing wetlands. Key to mitigation is the strategic use of wetlands mitigation bank credits to offset the removal of wetlands.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe wetlands regulation under the Federal Clean Water Act.
  • You will be able to identify wetland mitigation banks.
  • You will be able to discuss purchasing credits.
  • You will be able to explain planning for construction activities.
