In addition to their current banks, IAMB, Inc. is looking for future wetland mitigation sites to add to the mitigation bank to continue to provide wetland credits. IAMB, Inc. representatives can help determine if your property might be suitable for restoration and inclusion in the mitigation bank.
Wetland Mitigation banking has been commonly used to replace wetland impacts on a national scale since the 1980’s. Mitigation banking is growing in the Midwest and becoming a preferred method to compensate for unavoidable wetland losses.
The mission of the Iowa Agricultural Mitigation Bank is to provide wetland mitigation credits for impacts to farmed wetlands in north central Iowa. The bank is intended to provide owners of farmed wetlands an alternative replacement option.
Credits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis with drainage district projects having the highest priority. Credit prices can vary depending on service area, with no minimum or maximum purchase limits.
