Title Applying Compensatory Mitigation Preferences Provided in the EPA Mitigation Rule to Virginia Water Protection Permitting
Document ID GM09-2004
Summary The purpose of this guidance is to define how the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Virginia Water Protection Permit (VWPP) Program will provide support for the 2008 Compensatory Mitigation Rule1 (Rule) issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). This guidance outlines how VWPP staff will support the Rule when reviewing and accepting compensatory mitigation packages until the VWPP regulation can be revised to conform to the Rule. The intent of this guidance is to reduce regulatory burden and to eliminate contradictory or duplicative compensation requirements between state and federal wetland regulatory programs. VWPP supports the Rule and concurs with the preference hierarchy presented in the Rule. VWPP staff should facilitate conformity to the Rule when reviewing compensatory mitigation
