New Hampshire In-Lieu Fee Program

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services ("DES") Aquatic Resource Mitigation ("ARM") Fund has been created as one of several compensatory mitigation options available to applicants for impacts to wetlands and other aquatic resources. This mitigation option is available for use after avoidance and minimization of impacts to these aquatic resources has been achieved. The ARM Fund seeks "no net loss" of aquatic resource acreage and functions using a watershed approach. See Figure 1 for the Hydrologic Unit Code 8 (HUC 8) display of the watersheds that is used for collection of funds.
