Press Release:

North Grand River Wetland And Stream Mitigation Bank Approved


Tuesday, July 12, 2016

 

 

David Flick, Principal and Founder of Terra Technologies, is proud to announce that the Kansas City District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has approved the North Grand River Wetland and Stream Mitigation Bank for use as centralized mitigation. With a service area that spans most of north-central Missouri, reaching from Kirksville and Macon in the east almost to Marysville in the west, this mitigation bank will compensate for impacts to wetlands and streams in both the North Grand River and Chariton River watersheds.

 

The site of the North Grand River Wetland and Stream Mitigation Bank is a 145-acre former farm which previously consisted of rolling upland pastures and low-lying floodplain row crop fields. The agricultural conversion of the site resulted in the straightening and relocation of the streams and the clearing of virtually all of the floodplain trees not immediately adjacent to a stream. The resulting decrease in flooding allowed the floodplains to be converted to row crop production and the prairies were altered to cool-season cattle pastures.

 

In order to address these historic impairments, many ecological improvements have been made to the property. These included restoring more than 52 acres of riparian buffer, establishing 21 acres of herbaceous wetlands, and enhancing a 2.6-acre forested wetland. Additionally, more than 67 acres of native buffers were established in the rolling hills which surround and protect the wetlands established in the low-lying fields and depressions within the site’s hillside drainages.
