Approval Received for Stream + Wetlands’ Pittsburgh District In-Lieu-Fee Program

Stream + Wetlands (formerly Ohio Wetlands)  is pleased to announce approval of our In-Lieu-Fee Program (ILFP) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Pittsburgh District. In May, OWF received approval for the ILFP covering the Upper Scioto and Tuscarawas watershed in the Huntington Corps District. The Pittsburgh District comprises part of eastern Ohio while the Huntington District encompasses 45,000 square miles in parts of five states, including the majority of Ohio. Prior to these approvals, these districts had very few options for wetland mitigation credits as many existing mitigation banks have few or no available credits. This authorization will assist permit applicants in these Districts with their mitigation needs.
