Or. Admin. R. 141-085-0740 - Authorization for Mitigation Banks

(1) Authorization Requirement. Bank sponsors must obtain a removal-fill permit for any removal-fill necessary to create a proposed bank in jurisdictional areas. At the discretion of the Department, the MBI may serve as the application if complete pursuant to OAR 141-085-0550, and may also serve as the Department's authorization. If the Department accepts the MBI as the application for a removal-fill permit, the bank sponsor must pay the applicable fee for a removal-fill application.
(2) Baseline Conditions Must Be Approved Prior to Construction. When removal-fill permits are not required to establish a mitigation bank, the Department will approve baseline conditions prior to construction.
(3) MBI Constitutes a Department Order. If a removal-fill permit is not required to construct a mitigation bank, the Department will consider the fully executed MBI an enforceable order.
(4) Draft MBI May Be Circulated for Public Notice. For mitigation banks that do not require a permit for construction, or for such banks that the Department elects to allow the MBI to serve as the permit application, a 15-calendar day public notice will be provided to the public of the Department's intent to approve the bank. The Department may elect to circulate a public notice of the MBI according to OAR 141-085-0560. If an MBI is used in place of a removal-fill permit application, it must meet the requirements for fees, content, and review procedures as specified in OAR 141-085-0545 through 141-085-0565.
