The fully-approved Jesuit Bend Mitigation Bank is an RS-owned, 338-acre former marsh and cypress-tupelo swamp that converted to open water over the last century and was restored to marsh in fall and winter of 2015-16. Restoration Systems and our financial partner and dredging contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, have implemented a Phase One project restoring 247.4 acres from open water to fresh-to-intermediate marsh through re-establishment, enhancement, and rehabilitation of the degraded site. The Plaquemines Parish bank is listed on the Regional Internet Bank Tracking System (RIBITS) and provides mitigation credits for marsh impacts across the entire Deltaic Plain of Coastal Louisiana.
Restoration Systems, LLC, founded in 1998, is a leading environmental restoration and mitigation company with more than 44 bonded mitigation banks and turn-key restoration sites in eleven states, which total more than 25,000 acres of wetlands, and 60 miles of creeks, streams, rivers and bayous. We are very interested in feedback on our existing projects and contacts regarding new projects. Restoration Systems restores and protects land and water by purchasing a permanent conservation easement or fee-simple interest from property owners, and physically restoring the waterways, trees and vegetation to exceed current function and duplicate historic condition as closely as possible.
As projects are put in place by RS and meet government standards over time for ecological improvement, Restoration Systems is issued “mitigation credits” by state and federal agencies that regulate development. The sale of the credits funds Restoration Systems’ beneficial activities. Credits may be purchased by mitigation fee programs, public works projects, or commercial developers (including airports, reservoir authorities, mining operations and builders) to meet their mitigation obligations. These impacts are generally allowed only after a public process, which demands the impact be avoided and minimized to the extent possible before mitigation of impacts is required.
