We are delighted to reveal our first project involving Mitigation Management’s construction crew. Click to learn more about our new team.
On May 16, 2018 Trey Evans and Matt Hughes from Mitigation Management were given the opportunity to address the entire EPA National Wetland Program body during their annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
October 20, 2015 – Atlanta, GA. – Mitigation Management (MM) has obtained the necessary federal, state, and local permits to improve habitat and water quality on 164 acres of wetlands, streams, and riparian buffers along the Etowah River in Dawson County, Georgia.
Hat tip to Mit Mail, who is looking to Massachusetts where a strict NNL policy dependent on on-site mitigation has backfired badly, leading the state to move toward third-party compensatory mitigation in search of better ecological results.
Hat tip to Mit Mail: An obscure lawsuit filed by a Matanuska Susitna wetlands mitigation bank could have national implications. The suit, now in Federal Claims Court, alleges breach of contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers, and land developers are closely watching the outcome.
This story takes you to Appomattox, Virginia where a farmer is using an innovative approach to keeping runoff out of the Chesapeake Bay. By planting trees on retired cropland, the farmer is helping to filter pollutants from streams in the watershed – and those benefits are sold as credits to developers, who must address water quality in state construction projects.
Law360, New York (November 03, 2014, 6:50 PM ET) -- The U.S. Court of Federal Claims dismissed a so-called wetland mitigation bank’s $1.4 million breach of contract suit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Friday, finding that while the contract between the agency and bank was indeed valid, the lawsuit was filed eight years too late.
Once routinely trapped and shot as varmints, their dams obliterated by dynamite and bulldozers, beavers are getting new respect these days. Across the West, they are being welcomed into the landscape as a defense against the withering effects of a warmer and drier climate.
WASHINGTON – Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe today announced nearly $35 million in grants to 20 states to enable collaborative efforts to conserve many of America’s imperiled species, ranging from the red cockaded woodpecker in the Southeast to a variety of bat species in the Midwest to a colorful flower in the Rocky Mountains.
The Nature Conservancy and JPMorgan Chase have a bold goal: Raise $1 billion over the next three years toward projects that protect agriculture, fisheries, water and land. These power brokers in conservation and finance seek nothing less than to create a mainstream market for investment in ecological conservation.
The latest delay of a draft environmental impact statement for the proposed Glades Reservoir will likely cost Hall County hundreds of thousands of dollars.
A $181 million fund to restore a large portion of the East Orleans Land Bridge didn’t come from local, state or federal government. The money to dredge sediment and rebuild marsh is from a private investment. It’s just one example of what America’s Wetland Foundation would like to see more of for certain coastal restoration projects that could get done faster and cheaper than through the federal process.
From water conservation and reducing our use of petroleum-based fuels to recycling and finding renewable energy sources, Georgia’s environmental successes are impressive. As green practices continue to become more standard in the construction and development industries, Atlanta is ahead of the pack. The city is a partner in the Better Buildings Challenge, a national leadership initiative with a goal of making the country’s commercial, multifamily and industrial buildings 20 percent more energy efficient by 2020. Taking it one step further, Atlanta added an extra 20 percent goal to reduce water use by 2020.
