Status

Approved

PHILLIPS CREEK MITIGATION BANK, formerly the site of cattle and hay pastures, now benefits from carefully planned and implemented wetland restoration, including the use of heavy machinery to place large woody debris in order to restore the area’s natural streams. This detailed and meticulous work led to Phillips Creek’s successful construction in 2017 as EIP and Delta Land Service’s first dual district bank.

EIP owns and sponsors the bank, while Delta continues to work with permittees and consultants to sell the credits. Credits from Phillips Creek Mitigation Bank meet the needs of diverse development projects in western Louisiana, from roads to oil and gas to industrial development.

A major component of stream restoration at Phillips Creek entailed the shaping of a large stream channel.
