Private Mitigation Banks

(Private wetland mitigation banks in northwest Florida)

There are currently eight fully permitted private wetland mitigation banks in northwest Florida, and one known to be under development.

Bear Creek Mitigation Bank

Breakfast Point Mitigation Bank

Devils Swamp Mitigation Bank

Garcon Peninsula Mitigation Bank

Horseshoe Mitigation Bank (Under Development)

Nokuse Plantation Mitigation Bank

Pensacola Bay Mitigation Bank

St. Marks Mitigation Bank

Sweetwater Mitigation Bank

The combined mitigation service areas (MSAs) of private banks currently permitted cover approximately 1/3 of the NWFMWD jurisdiction.  Federal and state permitting authorities decide when mitigation banks may be used as offsetting mitigation for a given impact.  The NWFWMD Umbrella Plan / In-Lieu Fee Plan does not compete with private mitigation banks.  Any questions regarding the current status of a mitigation bank should be directed to the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, or the individual bank.
