    The five U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Districts in the State of Missouri (Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Rock Island, and St. Louis Districts) are proposing to adopt the Missouri Wetland Assessment Method (MWAM) for determining mitigation requirements for impacts to jurisdictional wetlands in the State of Missouri. The MWAM was developed in response to state and Federal resource agency requests for Corps implementation of a standard tool for the assessment of wetland impacts and mitigation actions to be used in all Corps Districts in the State of Missouri. The MWAM, if adopted, will be the primary tool used for the evaluation of wetland impacts and mitigation proposals for Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1344) Department of the Army permit evaluations within the State of Missouri. A Public Notice for this proposed action is attached to this email. The Corps solicits your comment on the draft MWAM, and its proposed implementation in Missouri. Comments on the draft MWAM can be submitted to Mr. James Reenan at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, Missouri State Regulatory Office, 515 East High Street, Suite 202, Jefferson City, Missouri, 65101; or by email at james.s.reenan@usace.army.mil. Comments relating to the MWAM are due by close of business on June 5, 2016.
