What is mitigation banking?
Mitigation banking is when a land owner completes a large-scale habitat restoration project and places the land under a conservation easement. These activities produce “credits” for the restoration of the habitats on-site. These “credits” can be sold to private and public entities and offset allowable wetland impacts within the watershed.
BKI is intimately acquainted with all aspects of wetland mitigation banking. If you have any questions regarding the suitability of land as a mitigation bank or the State and Federal permitting process please give us a call. We love to discuss potential projects in this exciting industry.
