Proposed Beaver Creek Mitigation Bank
Meriwether County, Georgia (36 acres)

The proposed Beaver Creek Mitigation Bank is currently managed as pasture and agricultural fields. Impacted waters within the proposed bank include straightened channels, multiple ditches and two farm ponds. Approximately 5,000 feet of stream are proposed for restoration, which would consist of rerouting channels or creating a new floodplain within the existing channels in order to correct the dimension, pattern, profile, and flow regimes of the degraded stream segments. Proposed mitigation activities would also include draining and removing two farm ponds to reestablish a natural stream and floodplain. Approximately 4,000 feet of riparian buffer is proposed for restoration or preservation, since much of the streambank vegetation has been denuded (due to cattle browsing and trampling). Proposed riparian activities would entail vegetating buffers with native tree species, preserving the existing forested buffers, and reestablishing buffers in the currently impounded reaches.

Based on preliminary calculations of mitigation credits, the proposed Beaver Creek Mitigation Bank has the potential to generate a total of 70,000 stream credits. These credits will be sold to Section 404 permit applicants who are required to compensate for stream impacts occurring within the Upper Flint service area. Please note that the potential credit generation is only an estimate; therefore, the actual number of credits generated by the proposed bank is likely to change.
