Welcome to the Midwest Mitigation Oversight Association

Mitigation is the preservation, enhancement or creation of a natural resource and is often regulated by a local, state or federal governing authorities. Although local mitigation is governed by municipal code, federal and state mitigation is required by guidelines resulting from statutes contained in the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act. Most governing authorities require mitigation areas to be protected from disturbance through perpetuity. This is accomplished through the recording of a conservation easement at the local courthouse.
