EEP

 

In collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EEP hosted a Webinar on Dec. 16, 2009 to review the draft instrument developed to gain EEP compliance with the new federal mitigation rule (click on image to download the PowerPoint presentation).

     AGREEMENTS, RULES & LAWS

The In-Lieu Fee (ILF) programs administered by the Ecosystem Enhancement Program are governed by multiple legal and administrative documents that define how the programs are to be managed. Information on and links to these documents are contained within this subsection of EEP’s website.

AGREEMENTS

Instrument Governing ILF Programs For Stream & Wetland Mitigation

In July 2010, a new legal document (or instrument) for the operation and use of the Ecosystem Enhancement Program's ILF programs for stream and wetland mitigation was signed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The instrument complies with federal rules governing compensatory mitigation that became effective in June 2008, and supersedes the 2003 Memorandum of Agreement among USACE, NCDENR and NCDOT governing EEP operations, as well as a 1998 Memorandum of Understanding between NCDENR and USACE.
 
EEP worked with USACE, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other state and federal regulatory and resource agencies to develop the new instrument.  Click below to view in a browser or download the PDF version of EEP's In-Lieu Fee Instrument.

Agreement Governing Interactions Between NCDENR & NCDOT

NCDENR and NCDOT developed an agreement that provides details on how the two agencies interact on key aspects of their mitigation relationship. This agreement sets forth business operations between the two agencies.
