Why is ecological restoration good for the Nation’s waters?

Ecological restoration maintains and restores the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the Nation’s waters. Mitigation banking is an effective way to achieve this mission. #wetlands #ecology #msusa #mitigationusa www.msusa.com

Do all ecological restoration methods serve the same purpose?

Not all ecological restoration methods serve the same purpose–or are created in the same way. All development is tailored to the landscape’s unique ecosystem. #msusa #mitigationusa www.msusa.com

May is American Wetlands Month…

American Wetlands Month is a time when the EPA and our partner federal, state, tribal, local, non-profit, and private sector organizations celebrate the vital importance of wetlands to our Nation’s ecological, economic, and social health. Wetlands help improve water quality and supply, reduce flooding and provide critical habitat for plants, fish, and wildlife. #msusa #mitigationusa #wetlands Mitigation Solutions USA www.msusa.com

Did you know?

Did you know that for every acre of wetland impacted by a development project, 1.5X the ecological value is created? And that means improved water quality, better flood control and more ecological productivity protected in perpetuity. #msusa #mitigationusa #wetlands www.msusa.com

What are Streams?

A stream is a body of water with surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel. The flow of a stream is controlled by three inputs – surface water, subsurface water, and groundwater. The surface and subsurface water are highly variable between periods of rainfall.

What is a mitigation bank?

What is a Mitigation Bank? A mitigation bank is privately or publicly owned land managed for its natural resource values. In exchange for permanently protecting the land, the bank operator is allowed to sell credits to developers who need to satisfy permitting requirements for compensating environmental impacts of development projects. www.msusa.com #msusa #mitigationusa
