Monitoring the Compensatory Wetland Mitigation Site


Monitoring a compensatory wetland mitigation (CWM) site allows the Department to determine whether the site is meeting the goals, objectives and performance standards outlined in the CWM plan and required in the permit.  A competent mitigation monitoring effort will require knowledge of:
·         Monitoring methods for vegetation and determining the area of wetland achieved
·         Data analysis standards for evaluating field data against the established performance standards for the site
·         The types and content of mitigation monitoring reports required by the removal-fill permit
·         The duration of the monitoring period
