All credit requests must be submitted in writing, and must include the name of the permit applicant the USACE and NCDWQ projects numbers and the number of stream and wetland credits being requested for each HU.  Credits will be sold on a first come, first served basis as credit availability allows.  If the Upper French Broad Bank has credits available, a Credit Reservation Letter will be sent to the permit applicant, reserving those credits for the subject project.  All Credit Reservation Letters expire after 180 calendar days.  If payment and supporting documentation is not provided within 180 calendar days, the credits will be released back into the bank for sale to other projects.  If the permitting process takes longer than 180 days, a second Credit Request Form must be submitted in order for the Upper French Broad Bank to continue to reserve those credits.  Payment may be made through check or Departmental Transfer Invoice (DTI).  Once payment is made, the Compensatory Mitigation Responsibility Transfer Form will be completed and sent to the Corps of Engineers, completing the transfer.

What is Mitigation?

GPR is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. GPR can have applications in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and other structures. GPR provides information, which can be used to help determine construction conditions without disrupting the site.

At PLRC no project is too large or too small. We have a broad spectrum of capabilities, including anything from sub-division road design all-the-way to dam modifications. Please don't hesitate to give us a call, we look forward to helping you achieve your project goals!

Mitigation banking is the preservation, enhancement, restoration or creation (PERC) of a wetland, stream, or habitat conservation area which offsets, or compensates for, expected adverse impacts to similar nearby ecosystems.

PLRC provides  land analysis, property development feasibility studies, earthworks analysis, drainage studies, storm-water management , design for infrastructure improvements and construction observation.

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a tool that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. This nondestructive method uses electromagnetic radiation in the microwave band (UHF/VHF frequencies) of the radio spectrum, and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. GPR can have applications in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. In the right conditions, practitioners can use GPR to detect subsurface objects, changes in material properties, and voids and cracks.
