Dinner Presentation – King County’s “In-Lieu Fee” Mitigation Program
Michael Murphy, Land Conservation Program Manager, King County

King County’s "in-lieu fee" mitigation program, the first in lieu fee program in Washington State to be certified under 2008 federal rules. The Mitigation Reserves Program may offer some permit applicants an option to purchase mitigation credits from King County to fully satisfy mitigation obligations associated with projects that result in unavoidable impacts to wetlands, rivers, streams, or buffers. The county then uses collected mitigation fees to implement mitigation projects that make up for impacts to aquatic resources.



Michael Murphy is a Land Conservation Program Manager with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. He manages King County’s fee in-lieu mitigation program, assists with all aspects of the Transfer of Development Rights program, and helps set conservation and acquisition priorities for the Department of Natural Resources and Parks. Prior to his work with land conservation programs, he worked as Environmental Scientist with the county collecting, interpreting, and reporting water quality data and working with lakeside residents to improve their lakes through responsible stewardship. He has also worked in public outreach and education, run environmental programs for inner-city youth, and led crews of local and international youth implementing environmental restoration projects. He graduated from Brown University with a degree in biology. He spends his free time with his family and enjoys sailing, cycling and skiing.
