Wildlands’ stream mitigation project reaches the “close-out” milestone

Wildlands is thrilled to announce that our Scaly Bark Creek Mitigation Project has received approval for close-out from the Interagency Review Team. This is Wildlands’ first full-delivery contract with the North Carolina Division of Mitigation Services to reach the close-out milestone, a seven-year achievement. This project consisted of 4,875 linear feet (LF) of stream restoration, 3,596 LF of stream enhancement level II, and 700 LF of stream preservation. As a result of these successful efforts, this project delivered 6,453 stream mitigation units to the North Carolina Division of Mitigation Services.

Henry Fork Construction is Complete

Wildlands is pleased to announce that construction has been completed on Henry Fork Stream and Wetland Mitigation Full-Delivery Project. Located in Catawba County, NC, this project is expected to deliver 4,500 stream mitigation units and 4.0 wetland mitigation units at closeout. As a value-added benefit of the project, Wildlands also acquired the entire 50-acre parcel and included this area within the established permanent conservation easement, establishing a permanent 100-foot buffer on the Henry Fork River and with the vision of a more holistic bottomland wetland forest ecosystem restoration. The mitigation activities removed four golf course ponds, along with reestablishing step-pool channel in the upper tributaries and meandering stream-wetland complex channels where streams enter the floodplain of the larger river.

Construction is complete on Owl’s Den Stream and Wetland Mitigation Project

Wildlands is developing this full-delivery project in Lincoln County, which flows on the site of a blackberry farm. The project will provide 2,400 SMUs and 8.0 WMUs for the NC Division of Mitigation Services. Construction was completed in July 2015 and the site will be planted in the fall of 2015.

This full-delivery project included existing site assessment, conservation easement acquisition, permitting, stream restoration design, construction, and seven years of post-construction monitoring of geomorphic stability and vegetation. Detailed hydrologic modeling was completed to study wetland-groundwater connections. The project is currently in the baseline monitoring phase.
