Expiration date: 9/15/2021

The bank sponsor proposes to complete activities on 81 acres of privately owned property that would result in the establishment of both forested and emergent wetland mitigation credits. The goal of the bank is to enhance/restore wetlands to generate approximately 50 wetland credits. Wetland enhancement/restoration will include the following: grading of farmed upland areas to restore hydrology, removal and management of invasive species and seeding with native wetland vegetation/trees. A wetland delineation was conducted in 2020 and identified 37.94 acres of wetlands within the proposed bank site.
