Project In Development
Located in southwestern Pennsylvania, Rocky Run is a fully authorized stream and wetland mitigation bank in the Upper Ohio-Wheeling River Basin, PA State Watershed 20. The bank provides stream and wetland mitigation credits to compensate for unavoidable impacts to waters of the United States and waters of the Commonwealth authorized under Sections 401 and 404 of the Clean Water Act, Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, and Title 25, Chapter 105 of the Pennsylvania Code.
Rocky Run’s mitigation goals and objectives are based on the current resource condition and functional capacity to improve and protect diverse aquatic resources by utilizing a floodplain and legacy sediment removal restoration approach. WLS’s restoration efforts will expand and establish stream-wetland complexes, restore, and enhance stream and groundwater exchange, improve stream geomorphology to reduce erosion and sedimentation, and increase density and diversity of native riparian buffer species through planting and invasive species management.
