Firms Design and Construct Large Scale Permittee-Provided Mitigation Project for Jackson County Public Works

February 3, 2014

Terra Technologies successfully designed and permitted a large scale permittee-provided mitigation project for the Lee’s Summit Road Improvements project in Jackson County Missouri. In conjunction with Swallow Tail Design Build Inc, the project provided approximately 7,561 stream credits of ecological benefit within the project watershed as compensatory mitigation for stream function losses resulting from the transportation project. The mitigation plan incorporated geomorphic and habitat improvements to several thousand feet of Blue Branch of Sni-a-Bar Creek.


Mitigation was performed on land owned by Swallow Tail LLC, the firms wetland and stream mitigation bank company. Swallow Tail also provided the required financial assurances, legal protection, and indemnification to the county. As such, the firms were able to deliver a turnkey project to Jackson County at a cost 25% below current market for credit purchases from mitigation banks. For more information about permittee-provided mitigation projects and turnkey compensatory mitigation alternatives, contact your local office of Terra Technologies.
