Description: The continued and increasing need for stream mitigation to offset impacts from highway construction prompted MoDOT to seek out stream-bank restoration projects that provide greater benefits to stream habitat, thereby increasing the amount of credits available for a stream mitigation bank. Missouri fisheries biologists suggested the treatment of low-water crossings within critical habitat for a fish (Niangua darter), federally listed as threatened, providing long-lasting stream and species-specific benefits. Low-water crossings on Missouri county roads can limit aquatic organism movement because they create jump and velocity barriers. Modification of these structures enables fish populations to reconnect, increasing opportunity for genetic diversity and boosting population growth; improving sediment transport; and minimizing future maintenance costs.

Until this project, there was no accepted methodology in Missouri to calculate the amount of stream mitigation credit received by modifying low-water crossings. Development of the survey methodology was a collaborative effort between MoDOT and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) resulting in a framework of credit calculation for all future low-water crossing improvement projects. Collaboration was also necessary to gain approval of the survey methodology by all five U.S. Army Corps of Engineers districts with jurisdiction in Missouri, Region 7 Environmental Protection Agency, MDC, Region 3 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Once this methodology was established, the first MoDOT Stream Mitigation Bank was approved by these regulatory/resource agencies. The methodology uses an innovative approach demonstrating MoDOT’s commitment to quality stream mitigation projects and provides an optional method to establish mitigation in the state for permitted stream impacts. Since this work is generally done outside of MoDOT right-of-way, an agreement with counties enables the work on the low water crossings.
