The Earth Partners is a leading voice on public policies associated with both environmental markets, generally, and mitigation banking, specifically.
The Earth Partners submitted these comments to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in November 2020 regarding its proposal to reissue the Nationwide Permits. TEP raised three primary concerns and the Corps addressed two of them in its final version. TEP is now working with the Biden administration to address our remaining concern.
The Bastrop Bayou Mitigation Area can be used to offset impacts to palustrine emergent (PEM), palustrine scrub-shrub (PSS), and palustrine forested (PFO) wetlands. The site is located in the Austin-Oyster HUC (12040205).
The Earth Partners has executed several Permittee-Responsible Mitigation projects for clients and has restored every type of aquatic resource recognized by the Army Corps of Engineers – Galveston District.
