Mitigation to Restore & Protect Streams and Wetlands for West Virginia’s Future Generations

Need to offset unavoidable stream or wetland impacts through high-quality mitigation? Credits from the West Virginia Stream Mitigation Banks are your ideal solution.

The West Virginia Stream Mitigation Banks are large-scale stream restoration sites owned and operated by Ecosystem Investment Partners (EIP)—the country’s leading provider of environmental credits. The West Virginia Stream Mitigation Banks include:

  • Copperas Stream Mitigation Bank (Logan County)
  • Lower Dempsey Stream Mitigation Bank (Logan County)
  • Marytown Stream Mitigation Bank (McDowell County)
  • Crow Run Mitigation Bank (Wetzel County)
  • Oxbow Mitigation Bank (Ritchie County)
  • Brushy Fork Mitigation Bank (Harrison County)
  • Kanawha Mitigation Bank, Yeager Fork site (Mason County)
  • Kanawha Mitigation Bank, Sapsucker Run site (Mason County)

Mitigation credits from EIP enable you to satisfy the requirements of your environmental permit quickly and cost-effectively while eliminating liability exposure. Credit purchases also promote large scale conservation and restoration of West Virginia’s stream corridors for future generations.

The West Virginia Stream Mitigation Banks are approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to fulfill mitigation requirements of Section 404 Clean Water Act permits.(1)

Restoration Initiative

The West Virginia Stream Mitigation Banks include eight protected and restored properties covering nearly 16,000 acres of West Virginia.

The properties EIP owns and manages are ideally suited for the cost-effective restoration of perennial, intermittent and ephemeral stream channels in order to generate significant ecological uplift. EIP has restored miles of important ecological functions to streams historically degraded by pre-law mining practices, road construction and logging. Credits generated through the bank’s restoration of these critical aquatic resources are used to compensate for the unavoidable impacts from various economic development projects throughout West Virginia.

After Restoration: Stream Channel and Buffer Restored
During Restoration: Extensive Earthwork Required to Reestablish Natural Stream Coridors
During Restoration: Natural Stream Design Using Riffle-Pool Formation
Before Restoration: Natural Streams Converted to Road by Former Property Owners
