Project Summary

Wetlands Resource Center was retained by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan to provide wetland and stream mitigation required as a result of expansion of its phosphate mine located in Aurora, North Carolina.

Wetlands Resource Center was responsible for locating as well as design, permitting, construction and monitoring the mitigation site. The site is over 4,500 contiguous acres in size and contains over 3,000 acres of active agricultural crop production. Construction of the site began in the winter of 2009 and will continue through February of 2011. Over 3,400 acres of wetland habitat will be restored including the planting of 1.6 million trees and 1000 acres will be preserved.

The project will also restore 7,400 feet of prime headwater streams in the Rutman Creek watershed.
