Case Study #4: The North Carolina Department of Transportation Compensatory Mitigation Program
The North Carolina Department of Transportation provides compensatory wetland and stream mitigation by three methods; (1) an in-house program, (2) payment into the North Carolina Wetlands Restoration Program, and (3), a Full Delivery Program. The in-house program is comprised of mitigation sites planned and constructed on properties acquired by the Department and constitutes the majority of our wetland mitigation acreage. In specified watersheds throughout the state, the Wetlands Restoration Program provides all of the Department's compensatory stream and wetland mitigation at a standard fee schedule. The Full Delivery Program consists of the acquisition of compensatory mitigation that is planned, designed, constructed, and monitored by a private firm on property acquired by that firm under contract to the Department. Selected case studies of mitigation sites from each of these methods will be reviewed.
