9VAC25-770-110. Allowable Financial Mechanisms for Compensatory Mitigation Activities Other Than in-Lieu Fee Fund Donations or Mitigation Bank Credit Purchases.

A. If a permittee does not purchase mitigation bank credits or donate to an in-lieu fee fund as part of his compensatory mitigation plan, the permittee must demonstrate financial responsibility using one of the mechanisms specified in 9VAC25-770-120 through 9VAC25-770-150. The mechanisms used to demonstrate evidence of financial responsibility shall ensure that the funds necessary to meet the costs of completing compensatory mitigation requirements for the permitted project as described in 9VAC25-770-70 will be available whenever they are needed. Financial responsibility mechanisms shall be in the amount equal to the cost estimate approved by the board.

B. The permittee shall provide continuous coverage to implement the compensatory mitigation plan until released from financial responsibility requirements by the board.

C. The director may reject the proposed evidence of financial responsibility if the mechanism submitted does not adequately assure that funds will be available to complete the necessary compensatory mitigation activities. The permittee shall be notified in writing within 60 days of receipt of a complete financial responsibility submission of the tentative decision to accept or reject the proposed evidence.
