Mitigation Bank

Status

Approved

UPPER ATCHAFALAYA MITIGATION BANK is part of a successful portfolio of wetland mitigation banks EIP acquired from Delta Land Services in July 2018. Once degraded by soybean farming land practices, this site now is home to revived bottomland hardwoods and cypress swamps — an archetypal Louisiana ecosystem — as well as to black bears.

EIP owns and sponsors Upper Atchafalaya Mitigation Bank, and Delta continues to work with permittees and consultants to sell the credits. Credits from this bank meet the needs of diverse development projects in the Atchafalaya watershed, from roads to oil and gas to industrial development.
