Description: In an effort to address wetland impacts on a more ecologically sound and watershed basis, VDOT has been establishing several large wetland banks around Virginia in different watersheds. This effort puts VDOT in position to offer mitigation banking as compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts. In that regard, VDOT has entered into five banking agreements since late 2001. These agreements cover the Mattaponi Wetland Bank (approximately 70 acres), Mountain Run Wetland Bank (approximately 28 acres), the William Benjamin Nottoway River Wetland Bank (approximately 30 acres), Great Oaks Wetland Bank (approximately 27 acres), and Eagle Rock Wetland Bank (approximately 85 acres).

The cost of constructing a wetland is approximately $125,000 per acre. Constructing larger wetlands in advance of identified needs in targeted watershed and in locations that are not as developed and more cost-effective could save VDOT millions of dollars. It is also estimated that the use of a wetland bank on a project could save up to 25% in processing time for the permit.
