Wetlands and Stream Mitigation Bank Feasibility Study (Fort Bend County)

Fort Bend County,TX

RGME prepared a feasibility study to determine if the development of a mitigation bank should be pursued, alone or in concert with a partner organization.  The study researched and determined the anticipated supply and demand of stream and wetland credits in the year 2040.  RGME evaluated the supply and demand by watershed and recommended various possible locations for a mitigation bank.  Private land owners in the target watershed were approached to determine if there was interest in pursuing a joint or collaborative facility.  RGME interviewed key managers and elected officials at the County to identify policy issues surrounding the establishment of a mitigation bank.  RGME prepared detailed implementation cost estimates and revenue projections.  RGME evaluated options using a comparison of calculated net present values.
