Compatibility determinations are documents written, signed and dated by the refuge manager and the regional chief of refuges that signify whether proposed or existing uses of national wildlife refuges are compatible with their establishing purposes and the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System.
Compatibility determinations are required for all refuge recreational and educational programs and the construction or expansion of recreational and educational facilities such as boardwalks and boat ramps.
Compatibility determinations are also required for management activities performed by private parties in return for a market commodity, such as cooperative farming to provide food for wildlife, and for granting or modifying rights-of-way through refuges for pipelines, roads, or electrical transmission lines.
