Compensatory mitigation is the use of ecological restoration to offset functional losses incurred under section 404 of the Clean Water Act. For mitigation programs to work effectively, knowledge about the various practices that are employed as stream mitigation must be disseminated efficiently to interested parties. The selected candidate will be responsible for reviewing and summarizing primary literature of interest to the EPA’s Mitigation Workgroup and maintaining the Sharepoint page on which this information is shared.
