    Expiration date: 4/26/2012

    On March 30, 2007, the five U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Districts in the State of Missouri adopted the MSMM. The MSMM was developed in response to agency comments for implementing a stream mitigation assessment method to adequately address compensatory mitigation for stream impacts and the need for a consistent standard to be used in all Corps Districts in the State of Missouri. The MSMM became the primary tool used for the evaluation of stream impacts and mitigation proposals for Department of the Army permit evaluations within the State of Missouri. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources also modified their State of Missouri Aquatic Resources Mitigation Guidelines to include the MSMM.
