The bank sponsor proposes to complete activities on 18.30 acres of privately owned property that would result in the establishment of stream mitigation credits. The goal of the bank is to restore 1,844 linear feet of Rapid Creek to generate an initial estimate of 31,448.46 stream credits. The bank sponsor proposes to use many different instream methods to aid in restoring Rapid Creek, including establishing floodplain connectivity, creating floodplain benches, re-meandering the stream to restore natural sinuosity to the channel and decrease slopes and utilizing streambed grade control by constructing rock riffles.
