The proposed French Quarter Creek project proposal consists of establishing a freshwater wetland and stream mitigation site as part of a mitigation bank.  The proposed work consists of both wetland and stream restoration, enhancement, enhancement by upland buffering, and preservation.  In detail, the project proposes to restore approximately 70.5 acres of bottomland hardwood forest by filling ditches and raising the water table of the affected area; enhance approximately 206 acres of various wetland habitats through planting of native species and land management practices; and approximately 1,200 feet of stream restoration.  The project purpose is to provide compensatory mitigation for unavoidable, adverse impacts to Waters of the United States.
