Service Areas

Mitigation banking is divided into 12 watersheds that serve as the areas within which banks may sell credits and be considered "in service area. "If mitigation bank credits are not available in the service area, further guidance on how to determine credit ratios can be found in the 2013 Guidelines for Wetland Compensatory Mitigation in Wisconsin (Version 1), under Chapter 3.
