NCAEP is pleased to announce the second opportunity to participate in our new lunch and learn partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District. Meetings will be held across the state. Topics will change quarterly. The second meeting on the first topic, Mitigation Update, will be held on 21 February 2019 in Raleigh.
Lunch at the meeting will be sponsored by Water & Land Solutions. Please contact Ward Marotti (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn about subsequent meetings' sponsorship opportunities and to suggest future meeting topics.
The Wilmington District has been a leader in both stream and wetland mitigation since compensatory mitigation became a requirement for Clean Water Act permits. And since the issuance of the 2008 Federal Mitigation Rule, we have made many improvements in how we address the need for mitigation for permits issued by the District, and how we go about processing and reviewing mitigation sites. Mr. Todd Tugwell, a Mitigation Project Manager with the Wilmington District, will discuss a number of topics, such as the current status and trends of mitigation bank and In-Lieu Fee sites, recent updates to District guidance, initiatives that the IRT is currently working on, and other mitigation-related topics. Mr. Tugwell will also be available to answer questions, and interaction is encouraged throughout the meeting.
