Blackberry Creek Headwaters Wetland Mitigation Bank

Campton Township, Illinois

This project involved designing, permitting, constructing and managing a wetland mitigation bank on a 220-acre property with a long history of agricultural use and an extensive drain tile system . To create 90 acres of wetland, V3 removed the drain tile system and established native wetland and prairie plant communities. Phase 1 resulted in the successful restoration of 69 acres of high quality wetland and prairie which met all wetland mitigation banking standards after the five year management and monitoring period, resulting in the certification of 48.9 acres of wetland mitigation credit. A mitigation bank instrument (MBI) was required for the expansion of Phase II. The MBI was submitted in September 2016 and was approved in December 2016.
