The goal of the Bank Site is to restore and preserve self-sustaining, functional streams, wetlands, and riparian corridors. By following this goal, the site replaces the functions and values lost from adverse impacts to streams and wetlands due to various permitted development projects within the Ohio River Sub-basin (State Water Plan Watershed Subbasin 20). These development efforts will provide an in-kind replacement for the direct loss or functional degradation of the stream, wetland, and riparian resources that result from unavoidable aquatic resource impacts. Implementation of these improvements in advance of the impacts will serve to eliminate the temporal loss of function that may result from alternative mitigation approaches.
