Wildlands has completed ecological restoration work at a site near Albemarle, NC. At close-out the project provided 6,453 SMUs on Scaly Bark Creek and six (6) unnamed tributaries in the Yadkin River basin. The project included categorical exclusion documentation, existing conditions assessment, landowner coordination, conservation easement acquisition, restoration design, permitting, construction, and five (5) years of post-construction monitoring. Because Scaly Bark Creek is located in a mapped floodplain, Wildlands performed detailed hydraulic modeling of the proposed restoration and successfully completed a Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR). Construction was completed in April 2011 by North State Environmental. A Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) was completed with the as-built survey. The project reached the close-out phase in July 2016.
