Estuarine Mitigation Policy in Oregon: A History

by Philip J. Quarterman, Oregon Dep of Land Conservation, & Development, Salem, OR, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85


Oregon's Coastal Zone Management Program requires mitigation for estuarine intertidal fill and removal, by creation, restoration or enhancement of another area to maintain the biological and physical processes of the system. The evolution of this policy into a Statute and Administration Rule involved lengthy discussion and compromise between a variety of interested parties. The Rule assesses mitigation requirements using a methodology based on numerical 'relative values' for each habitat type.
