    Writing Performance Standards for Wetland Mitigation. WSDOT Updated 08 /23/ Performance standards are critical components of any wetland mitigation report. These performance criteria describe measurable attributes that can be used to evaluate success in meeting the goals and objectives of a compensatory mitigation. For wetland individual permit applicants, permittee responsible mitigation sites must be located inside the same Service Area Map watershed or within one-half mile of the wetland impact site. For exempt nonfederal wetland project proponents, sites must be located within the same compensation search area, which includes the geographical. wetland area, this old ditch is perched above the elevation of the drain and is providing some filtration and ground water recharge functions. The mitigation wetlands have been designed to provide emergent and scrub wetlands that have greater wetland functions, values, benefits, and use then those of the existing wetlands on the subject property.

1Washington State Department of Ecology Shorelands & Environmental Assistance Program, Lacey, Size: KB. The state's wetland program goal is to achieve a no-overall-net loss in the amount (acreage) and function of Washington's remaining wetlands.

The program also aims to increase the quantity and quality of Washington's wetlands resource base. We meet these goals, in part, through strategies designed to avoid, minimize, and compensate or mitigate. This is Appendix F to the Washington Washington State wetland mitigation evaluation study book Wetland Mitigation Evaluation Study - Phase 2: Evaluating Success (see Related Publications below).

The Appendix provides a summary for each of the projects evaluated in the study.
