Press Release:

Clear Fork Wetland And Stream Mitigation Bank Approved


January 14, 2014

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the Clear Fork Wetland & Stream Mitigation Bank has been approved and has wetland and stream credits available for sale. This mitigation bank is located along the Clear Fork of the Blackwater River north of Knob Noster State Park.

 

The creation and enhancement of wetland and stream habitats on this 212-acre site will be used as compensatory mitigation for impacts to those natural resources within the Missouri River watershed from Kansas City to mid-Missouri. This service area includes virtually all of Jackson, Ray, Lafayette, Saline and Pettis Counties as well as parts of Clay, Cass, Johnson, Benton, Morgan, Moniteau, Cooper, Chariton, Carroll, Clinton and Caldwell Counties.

 

In response to the needs of the watershed, this mitigation bank includes more than 84 acres of floodplain wetlands and in excess of 97 acres of newly planted riparian buffer. Existing riparian buffers will be enhanced and both sides of more than a mile of Clear Fork is protected from disturbance as well as more than a mile and a third of both sides of several tributary streams. The additional riparian buffers and wetlands will help to absorb and filter sediment and agricultural pollution from more than 570 acres of adjacent agricultural land that drains directly across the site. Additionally, the restored habitats which were constructed in 2010 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.
