To the Honorable, the Legislature:
The Department of Natural Resources is pleased to convey to the Legislature the attached report of current data on the status and activities for wetland compensatory mitigation. This is our third biennial report as required by statute. A full version of the report can be found on the Department's website: http://dnr.wi.gov/wetlands/mitigation/currentstatus.html.
A436 Mitigation activities began in 2002, when the Department developed administrative rules to implement 1999 WI Act 147. Through the end of 2010, 108 development projects involving wetland fill were able to proceed using compensatory mitigation.
Overall, we find that voluntary mitigation is working and we are satisfied that it is a positive element in the regulatory decision-making process. In the next two years, we will continue to maintain and efficient application process while working with collaborators to make the decision-making process clearer and more efficient.
Sincerely,
Cathy Stepp
Secretary
Referred to committee on Natural Resources.
