Wetland Mitigation Banking Contact: Michael Pennington. Wetland mitigation is the replacement of wetland functions through the creation or restoration of wetlands. Mitigation is required as a condition of many permits issued under state law (Part , Wetlands Protection, of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, PA , as amended) and federal law (Part A wetland mitigation bank is a site where wetlands are restored, created, enhanced, or in exceptional circumstances preserved for the express purpose of providing compensatory mitigation in advance of unavoidable impacts to wetlands or other aquatic resources.
sediment supply can be detrimental to the maintenance of tidal wetlands in their existing location, extent and elevation. Freshwater tidal wetlands in the Hudson are protected from active human disturbance under a variety of New York State and Federal laws, but . Mitigation banking at WSSI has a long history that starts with Virginia’s first wetland mitigation bank and encompasses the first mitigation bank to sell stream credits. Our extensive firm experience and staff expertise allow WSSI to efficiently work through the mitigation banking approval process and establish bank sites that are thriving.
Research from The Nature Conservancy says coastal wetlands prevented more than $ million in property damages during Hurricane Sandy and reduced property damages throughout the Northeast by 10 percent on average. In New Jersey alone, wetlands saved more than $ million in property damages. In Maryland, wetlands reduced damages by 29 percent.

The Federal Mitigation Rule defines a mitigation bank as a site, or suite of sites, where resources (e.g., wetlands, streams, riparian areas) are restored, established, enhanced, and/or preserved for the purpose of providing compensatory mitigation for impacts authorized by permits.

The National Wetlands Inventory The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is the principal US Federal agency tasked with providing information to the public on the status and trends of our Nation's wetlands. The book chapter, North Atlantic Coastal Tidal Wetlands, provides college instructors, researchers, graduate and advanced undergraduate students, state and federal wetland managers, and restoration specialists information on the ecology and conservation concerns of tidal wetlands from the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine to Delaware Bay.
z Making the process of establishing a mitigation bank more predictable by establishing disciplined timelines for the review of bank proposals. The new standards’ emphasis on the use of watershed assessments to identify priority wetland restoration and protection projects will encourage federal, state, tribal and local planning efforts.
For a coastal bank with a slope greater than or equal to the "top of coastal bank" is that point above the year flood elevation where the slope becomes less than (see Figure 2).
For a coastal bank with a slope greater than or equal to but less thanthe top of coastal bank is the year flood elevation. (see Figure 3). 15 Tidal Wetlands and Estuaries November 2 KEY FINDINGS 1.

Mitigation banking does not allow urban builders to ignore the wetland conservation sequence described in the Clean Water Act, as they may purchase mitigation credits only if damage to an on-site wetland is unavoidable.
Like landowners, they must submit to a lengthy application process to obtain the approval of the state mitigation banking File Size: 1MB.
Salt marshes and mud flats are some typical types of tidal wetlands found along New York's marine shoreline. Tidal wetlands are classified by the amount of water covering the area at high and low tides and the type of vegetation.
New York State uses specific categories and codes to describe and represent different types of coastal, tidal and fresh water wetlands. tidal wetlands and have begun to incorporate addi-tional approaches into the design and implementa-tion of tidal wetland restoration (Philip Williams & Associates Ltd.
and Faber ). In particular, prac-titioners have focused on tidal channel development, using the approach of “over-excavating” sites orFile Size: KB. Despite New Jersey’s population of over 9 million, widespread development and its industrial history, the Garden State boasts an extraordinary mix of ecological resources across its million acres of open space – from the deep forests in the northwest of the upper Delaware River, down through fertile farmlands of the central plain and on.
CRI develops compensatory mitigation alternatives for unavoidable wetland impacts associated with planned or proposed projects. CRI has designed numerous wetland and stormwater management mitigation systems including selecting appropriate planting materials, developing planting and grading plans, as well as writing design specifications and preparing cost estimates.

They can be similar, but the differences are often the extent of restoration, the cost of credits, and.Climate Change Impacts on Tidal Wetlands Climate change (CC) induced sea level rise has a fairly straightforward impact on coastal estuarine wetlands: inundation and rising water levels resulting in the conversion of vegetated areas into areas of open water, with a consequent loss of wetland functions associated with the loss of vegetated wetlands.RES Wetland and Stream Mitigation Solutions enable a clear path to project permits.
