Abstract : The purpose of this study was to assist the Wetlands Restoration and Banking Program (WRBP) in identifying and summarizing the range of options and issues relative to determining the feasibility of wetlands banking in Massachusetts. Results of this effort were used by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to explore the use of wetlands banks as a means to improve the success rate of wetland mitigation with unavoidable permitted wetlands loss and further implement the policy of no net loss of wetlands. The study was conducted under the authority contained in the Section 22, Planning Assistance to States Program.
