Steve spent 16-years with IWR as the National Subject Matter Expert for compensatory wetland mitigation, advancing wetland and stream compensatory mitigation policy and implementation and helped develop and deliver national and regional interagency training on all aspects of compensatory mitigation. Mr. Martin established a framework of technology that supports better compensatory mitigation decisions while also establishing an infrastructure of relationships among private and public entities that facilitates more intelligent and productive exchanges.
