Abstract : This document reports wetland mitigation banking experience to date. The Environmental Law Institute conducted an inventory of banks that supplemented information gathered as part of the National Wetland Mitigation Banking Study conducted by the Corps of Engineers Institute for Water Resources (IWR). Wetland mitigation banking, although practiced for more than fifteen years, is a concept still in its infancy. Existing mitigation banks were found to represent a variety of institutional arrangements, although single-client public works banks (mostly sponsored by state departments of transportation) are the most common at present. At the time this report was prepared, there was little useful experience with public general use, and private entrepreneurial banks. (AN)
