the Land Learning Foundation has requested approval for an in-lieu fee (ILF) mitigation project in Franklin County, Missouri. The project occurs on a degraded, unnamed tributary to the Meramec River. The Land Learning Foundation refers to this project as the Craghurst Farms site. The project will restore natural stream functions within an approximate 31-acre area, which is currently predominantly used as pasture. If approved by the Corps, the Craghurst Farms site will create a total potential mitigation credit release of 18,962 stream credits. The Land Learning Foundation would make the stream credit available to Department of the Army permittees seeking to fulfill requirements to purchase compensatory mitigation credit, to offset losses of aquatic functions and services. The Corps solicits your comment on the proposed mitigation project. Responses are due to this office no later than November 18, 2016.
