S+W’s ILF programs operate in two geographically distinct service areas in the 45,000-square-mile Huntington District in east and central Ohio. One service area consists of the Tuscarawas River (05040001) 8-digit HUC watershed and one consists of the Upper Scioto River (05060001) 8-digit HUC watershed.

Each of the above-listed 8-digit HUC watersheds also has a secondary service area that includes the remainder of the 6-digit HUC watershed in which each respective 8-digit HUC primary service area occurs (050400 Muskingum for the Tuscarawas service area and 050600 Scioto for the Upper Scioto service area). USACE and/or Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may authorize the use of the ILFP by permit applicants within the secondary service area on a case by case basis, when other ecologically preferable mitigation is unavailable, and consistent with the watershed approach outlined in 33 CFR 332.8.
Consistent with state law and Ohio USACE and Ohio EPA guidance, compensatory mitigation for impacts to isolated and jurisdictional Category 1 wetlands of any size and isolated Category 2 wetlands of 0.5 acre or less may be mitigated at any ILF wetland mitigation project located within the Ohio portion of the Huntington District provided that mitigation credits of the appropriate resource type are not available at an approved mitigation bank.
