The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts within the State of Missouri (Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Rock Island, St. Louis) (Corps) have adopted the MWMM on November 17, 2017.  The MWMM is the primary tool the Corps will use for the evaluation of wetland impacts and mitigation proposals for Department of the Army permit actions within the State of Missouri.  This MWMM will enhance the Corps ability to protect the Nation’s aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development through fair, flexible and balanced permit decisions. The Corps, along with other State and Federal agencies, drafted the MWMM to address conformance with the 2008 Compensatory Mitigation Rule (see 33 CFR part 332), improved consistency, flexibility and transparency throughout Missouri when addressing impacts to jurisdictional wetlands.  As part of this implementation, a public notice was issued on May 6, 2016 requesting public input on the MWMM.  We evaluated all comments received and tested various public recommendations in the development of this final version of the 2017 MWMM.
