Press Release:

Camp Branch Wetland & Stream Mitigation Bank Approved


Thursday, December 13, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the Camp Branch Wetland & Stream Mitigation Bank has been approved and has wetland and stream credits available for sale. The creation and enhancement of wetland and stream habitats on this 87-acre site will be used as compensatory mitigation for impacts to those natural resources within the South Grand River and upper Osage River watersheds in west-central Missouri. This service area includes virtually all of Cass, Henry and Bates counties as well as parts of Jackson, Johnson, Benton, St. Clair, Cedar, Barton and Vernon counties.

 

In response to the needs of the watershed, this mitigation bank includes more than ten acres of floodplain wetlands and in excess of forty acres of newly planted riparian buffer. Existing riparian buffers have been enhanced and almost two miles of streams have been protected on both sides with another third of a mile protected on one side. These additional riparian buffers and wetlands will help to absorb and filter sediment and agricultural pollution from more than 350 acres of adjacent agricultural land that drains across the site and from flood flows from Camp Branch. Additionally, the restored habitats which were constructed in 2009 provide high quality habitat to a number of wildlife species.

 

 

For more information about compensatory mitigation under Section 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act, contact your local office of Terra Technologies.
