The Land Learning Foundation has requested approval for an In-Lieu Fee (ILF) mitigation project in Franklin County, Missouri. The subject site consists of approximately 41.6+/- acres and contains both sides of Indian Creek. The Land Learning Foundation refers to this project as the Indian Creek site, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) has designated this project as MVS-2019-586. The mitigation project includes the preservation and restoration of forested riparian corridor, as well as the stabilization of highly eroded and incised channel bank.
A full technical description and illustrations can be found in the attached document. If approved by the Corps, the Indian Creek site will create a total potential mitigation credit release of 28,258.25 stream credits. The Sponsor would make the stream credits available to Department of the Army permittees seeking to fulfill requirements to purchase compensatory mitigation credit, in order to offset losses of aquatic functions and services.
The Corps solicits your comments on the proposed mitigation project, responses are due to this office no later than June 4, 2020.
