Press Release:

Little Stranger Creek Wetland And Stream Mitigation Bank On Public Notice


January 16, 2014

David Flick, principal and founder of Terra Technologies, is proud to announce the issuance of a Public Notice by the Kansas City District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the proposed establishment of the Little Stranger Creek Wetland & Stream Mitigation Bank. Located in Leavenworth County, Kansas, this proposed 68-acre mitigation bank is proposed to be used as compensatory mitigation for unavoidable impacts to streams and wetlands in the very downstream portions of the Kansas River and Missouri River watersheds within Kansas.

 

The water quality and wildlife habitat benefits provided by the mitigation bank property will be improved by re-establishing the native habitats that would have existed on the site before agricultural conversion, including naturally sinuous streams, sizeable floodplain wetland areas and surrounding upland buffers. Specifically, the proposed mitigation activities will involve the restoration of approximately 27 acres of additional forested riparian buffers, the creation or rehabilitation of 24 acres of floodplain wetlands and the establishment of 16 acres of upland buffer among other mitigation activities. In addition, two channelized or partially eradicated streams are proposed to be restored to naturally sinuous flow paths and channel cross sections along with sufficiently wide planted riparian buffers.

 

 

The public notice period is scheduled to end on February 15, 2014.
