The goal of this 379.95-acre nutrient bank located in Southampton County, Virginia is to reduce nutrient (phosphorus) and sediment loading into the Chowan River watershed via tributaries located within and/or in close proximity to the Bank through the conversion of active agricultural land into forest; and generate non-point nutrient Credits for transfer under existing and future federal, state and local law, programs, regulations and guidance, including the DEQ Guidance. This site lies within the twelve-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC) 030102011103 which drains into the Nottoway River. Specifically, the Project drains to Assamoosick Swamp, eventually finding its way to the Nottoway River, the principal drainage for eight-digit HUC 03010201.
