Norkett Branch Full-Delivery Mitigation Project

Client: NC Division of Mitigation Services
Location: Union County, NC


Wildlands is developing a full-delivery project in rural Union County on Norkett Branch and four tributaries. The project will provide 10,098 stream mitigation units for the NC Division of Mitigation Services. The project includes existing site assessment, conservation easement acquisition, permitting, stream restoration design, construction, and seven years of post-construction monitoring of geomorphic stability and vegetation. Detailed hydraulic modeling has been completed for both CLOMR and LOMR approvals. Two stormwater BMPs were being constructed to treat headwater agricultural runoff and provide SMU credit. Land Mechanic Designs, Inc. completed construction of the project in April 2014. The project is currently in the monitoring phase.
