Turner Tract Onsite Mitigation

Project Summary

Completed in 2010, this Permittee Responsible Mitigation (PRM) Site was developed for Southampton County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) as a component of a larger environmental and industrial development Land Plan.  Historically utilized for no till soybean and cotton production, the PRM Site was developed to provide onsite compensatory wetland mitigation for the development of the adjacent industrial park.

  • Provides replacement of low quality, fragmented, and  agriculturally impacted wetlands with a highly functional wetland complex
  • Completed as a Master Planning exercise which included the Industrial Park, Onsite Wetland Mitigation, and the adjacent Cheroenhaka Stream and Wetland Mitigation Bank
  • Designed in conjunction with innovative stormwater control and treatment measures from the adjacent land development improvement areas
