Need to offset unavoidable wetland impacts through high-quality mitigation? Credits from the Chef Menteur Pass Wetland Mitigation Bank are your ideal solution.
The Chef Menteur Pass Wetland Mitigation Bank is the only private, fully-permitted brackish marsh mitigation bank in southeastern Louisiana and is owned and operated by Ecosystem Investment Partners (EIP)—the country’s leading provider of environmental credits. Mitigation credits from EIP enable you to satisfy the requirements of your environmental permit quickly and cost-effectively while eliminating liability exposure. Credit purchases also promote the conservation and restoration of valuable coastal marsh habitat on the East Orleans Land Bridge, which is critical to our community’s ecology and storm protection.
The Chef Menteur Pass Wetland Mitigation Bank is approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to fulfill mitigation requirements of Section 404 Clean Water Act permits(1) and also approved by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Office of Coastal Management (OCM) to satisfy compliance under the Louisiana Coastal Resources Program/Coastal Use Permits(2) (CUP).
