Fee-based compensatory mitigation describes arrangements where Section 404 permittees satisfy mitigation requirements by contributing predetermined or negotiated fees to organizations carrying out wetlands restoration, creation, andor enhancement projects. In-lieu fees, fee-based compensation, and monetary compensation are other terms that have been used to describe this arrangement. This report examines the establishment, operation, use, and management of fee-based compensation in six case studies. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide information that will be helpful in evaluating the potential for these arrangements to satisfy mitigation requirements.
