Permitting Work that Impacts Streams and Wetlands: Helping You Through the Process

Aired: June 13, 2012 from noon to 1:00pm EDT

The Clean Water Act requires permits for any work that places fill in a stream or wetland.  This permitting process, essential for protecting Indiana's streams and wetlands, can seem intimidating. The names of the programs -- "401" for the Water Quality Certification from IDEM, and "404" for any activity placing fill or dredged material in "waters of the United States" from the Corps of Engineers -- do not make it any simpler. These two programs work together to protect streams and wetlands, and the two agencies work together to make the process easier for those applying for a permit.

In this webinar, Norma Condra of the Corps of Engineers and Jared Sanders of IDEM will team up to provide an overview of the 401 and 404 permitting process, the regulatory background, and examples of successful projects. They will also discuss the Volunteer Mitigation Map, which allows people or watershed groups that have sites where wetlands are desired to match up with projects that need to mitigate impacts elsewhere.
