Wetland Mitigation Banking

The US Army Corps of Engineers has recently granted final approval for the Lower Brazos River Mitigation Bank in Fort Bend County, Texas. The 300 acre Bank is being developed to provide mitigation credits which will compensate for unavoidable adverse impacts to Waters of the U.S. resulting from projects within the Bank’s Service Area. Credits will soon be available for both herbaceous and forested freshwater wetland impacts.

Advantages

  • Streamlines the Corps of Engineers permitting process.
  • Removes Permittee from long-term mitigation responsibilities.
