The effects of permitting decisions made under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act for which compensatory mitigation was required were examined. Information was compiled on permits issued in Oregon (1977-Jan 1987) and Washington (1980-1986). Data on the type of project permitted, wetland impacted and mitigation project were collected and analyzed. The records of the Portland and Seattle District Offices of the US Army Corps of Engineers and of Environmental Protection Agency Region X were the primary sources of information. The study illustrates how Section 404 permit data might be used in managing a regional wetland resource. However, because the data readily available were either incomplete or of poor quality, the process of gathering information was very labor-intensive. Since similar analyses would be useful to resource managers and scientists from other areas, development of an up-to-date standardized database is recommended.
