Fees for wetlands are calculated in increments of 0.25 acres as required by state rules. There is a flat fee for each increment of 0.25 acres; as such, credits less than 0.25 acres are invoiced at the quarter-acre fee; credits between 0.25 and 0.50 acres are invoiced at the half-acre fee.  Rules require that EEP review wetland and stream fee schedules annually and adjust them using the Civil Works Construction Cost Index.  Annual adjustments for wetland and stream fees are effective July 1 of each year.
