Mo Stream Mitigation Method

Published May 28, 2013
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts within the State of Missouri (Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Rock Island, St. Louis) in coordination with Federal and State agencies have completed their comprehensive evaluation and modifications to the Missouri Stream Mitigation Method (MSMM). The attached public notice announces the implementation of the 2013 version of the MSMM.  The MSMM will serve as the preferred method for quantifying unavoidable stream impacts associated with the review of permit applications submitted for Department of the Army permit authorization.  The MSMM will also serve as a tool for determining the amount of stream credits that a proposed mitigation project will generate based on its mitigation plan prepared for Stream Mitigation Banks, Individual In-Lieu Fee Stream Project Approvals, or Permittee-Responsible Mitigation Sites within the State of Missouri.
