Wetland and Stream Mitigation Banks
Environmental Services, Inc. (ESI) is a leader in developing wetland mitigation banks since permitting the first mitigation bank pursuant to Florida's mitigation banking rules in 1995. ESI has mitigation banking experience in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas. We have permitted wetland banks, stream banks, and combination sites involving thousands of acres of restoration and conservation.
ESI employees frequently prepare a due diligence analysis for each prospective mitigation bank which defines demand, anticipated service area, estimated credit generation, processing time and issues, potential competing mitigation options, and preliminary costs. We assist the client in identifying other necessary team members for the process and we prepare necessary background documentation, including the Mitigation Banking Instrument and associated permit applications. We maintain continuity by coordinating construction and by providing monitoring and maintenance for each mitigation bank.
