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
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? 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
