Westervelt Ecological Services is pleased to announce the expansion of the service area for Cosumnes Floodplain Mitigation Bank! The bank was approved by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), U.S Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) on September 30, 2009, to offer Floodplain Mosaic Wetlands (riparian wetlands and seasonal wetlands) under the Clean Water Act and Floodplain Riparian Habitat (Riparian Forest, Scrub Shrub), Floodplain Riparian Habitat Preserved (Enhanced) and Shaded Riverine Aquatic (SRA) credits. The expansion of the service area allows the bank to provide mitigation credits to more projects that have impacts to these habitat types. For more information about the bank, service area and credits available – please visit the project page.
