“Purchasing credits from an approved mitigation bank allows a developer to move on with their project in a quick and efficient manner,” Eric Held, manager of mitigation programs for DU’s Southern Region, said. “Purchasing credits is the preferred means of offsetting unavoidable environmental impacts. This bank will streamline the permitting process for development in the Memphis area, including government infrastructure, residential growth, and commercial enterprise.”

Over the coming months Ducks Unlimited, Inc. will plant nearly 23,000 native trees as part of the sites wetland habitat restoration. The entire restoration project will be monitored for several years to ensure its success and that it meets requirements of the Corps of Engineers.
