  • Description:
    "This study has as its primary purpose an examination of how compensatory mitigation has worked as a wetlands management tool to date in Virginia (i.e. how well theory has been put into practice). Our approach was to look at the overall use of compensation in coastal Virginia based on regulatory records and to examine as many existing created wetlands as possible within the tidal area of the state to determine how closely these projects have come, collectively, to fulfilling the compensatory goal of wetland replacement. Secondary objectives includes an examination of the literature regarding wetland compensation concept evaluation and to construct a comprehensive lists of wetland compensation sites in Virginia."--p.7.
