Press Release:

Sac River Wetland And Stream Mitigation Bank Approved


October 11, 2018

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 Sac River Wetland and Stream Mitigation Bank for use as centralized mitigation for activities authorized under Sections 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act. With a service area that encompasses the Ozark portion of the Osage River watershed, this mitigation bank will compensate for impacts to wetlands and streams throughout much of south-central Missouri, including Lake of the Ozarks, Lebanon, and the northern portion of the Springfield metropolitan area.

 

This 39-acre mitigation bank is located along one stream bank of a bypass channel of the Sac River not far downstream of Stockton Dam. This land was formerly in pasture and hay production although a few farmed wetlands were present, including one fed from a small seep. Because Stockton Dam has regulated the Sac River’s flows so that it does not flood anymore, floodplain wetlands have been restored to this property that receive their hydrology from overland flows instead. Having the agricultural runoff flow through these wetlands before entering the Sac River will help to improve downstream water quality and increase the amount of groundwater infiltration in the area. In addition, the mitigation bank will dramatically widen the amount of native habitat adjacent to the Sac River on the property which will be beneficial to deer, water fowl, wading birds, and other wildlife.

 

Many ecological improvements have been made to the property as part of the restoration of the site, including legally protecting and restoring, enhancing, or preserving the riparian buffer along more than 2,000 linear feet of one side of the Sac River bypass channel, 1,000 linear feet of perennial Silver Creek, and 2,500 linear feet of one or both sides of multiple tributary streams. In addition, almost 10 acres of herbaceous wetlands and almost 13 acres of wetland buffer have been established on the site.
