    The Huntington in-lieu fee program (ILFP) operates in two service areas in east and central Ohio within the Muskingum and Scioto watersheds in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Huntington District. The Steam & Wetlands Foundation ILFP provides third-party compensatory mitigation for unavoidable impacts to wetlands & streams delineated as waters of the United States and waters of the State of Ohio. The ILFP may be used by permit applicants to satisfy the compensatory wetlands mitigation requirements of permits issued under Section 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act, the Ohio Isolated Wetlands Permit Program (IWP, ORC 6111), and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act.

    The Stream + Wetlands Foundation ILFP operates in two geographically distinct service areas in the Huntington District, primarily based upon the 6-digit Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC). The ILFP designates one service area that consists of the Muskingum River (050400) 6 -digit HUC watershed and one that consists of the Scioto River (050600) 6-digit HUC watershed.

    For impacts to non-jurisdictional waters, the service area is as follows:

    For impacts to isolated Category 1 wetlands of any size and isolated Category 2 wetlands authorized under a level 1 review, the service area  includes the entire Ohio portion of the Corps District where impacts are located(ORC §6111.022);

    For impacts to isolated Category 2 wetlands greater than 0.5 acre and isolated Category 3 wetlands of any size, the service area  will encompass the 6-digit HUC service areas defined above for jurisdictional waters.

    Compensatory mitigation of impacts outside the service areas can be considered by the permitting agencies on a case-by-case basis consistent with applicable state and federal regulations and laws, including 33 CFR §325, 33 CFR §332, ORC §6111, and Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) §3745-1-54
