Improving Wetland Permitting

Improving Wetland PermittingMany states have been doing a number of things to improve wetland permitting in recent years. “Improved” permitting refers to making the permitting process more efficient while maintaining the same level of protection for wetlands and water resources; “more efficient” not only speaks to making it faster but also easier for both staff and applicants to understand. Some states have completed and others are starting activities that fall into the following categories: 1) consolidating permitting; 2) communication before permitting; 3) online applications; 4) utilizing science & technology; 5) enhancing data management; 6) consistency and program management (incl. evaluating permit decisions) and 7) other. State summaries that have been submitted so far are linked below.
