Ecological Setting

The Cardinal Site presents an opportunity to restore 9,458 linear feet of stream and riparian corridor, generating a base amount of 9,458 Stream Mitigation Units (SMUs). The Site will provide numerous ecological and water quality benefits within the Yadkin River Basin. These benefits are not limited to the project area but have more far-reaching effects throughout the Yadkin River Basin. The Site will provide improvements to water quality, hydrologic function, and habitat. The project will address stressors identified in the watershed through nutrient removal, sediment removal, runoff filtration, and improved aquatic and terrestrial habitat.
