Battle Ground Mitigation Project
Located on the former Remy Farm site owned by the City of Battle Ground, the Battle Ground Mitigation Project will rehabilitate and create approximately 60 acres of wetland and riparian habitat in the upper Mill Creek sub-basin. The Battle Ground project will provide advance mitigation to offset impacts in the rapidly developing portions of central Clark County. The restoration of the Remy farm site allows public infrastructure projects as well as other commercial development projects to occur, while at the same time consolidating those mitigation requirements to provide higher quality mitigation and greater functional lift to the watershed.
Construction of the Battle Ground Mitigation Project was completed in the Summer of 2011 with planting scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012. The project is restoring a contiguous mosaic of palustrine wetlands with forested, oak woodland, scrub-shrub, and emergent vegetation communities. The Battle Ground project serves unavoidalbe wetland impacts in the Upper Mill Creek and Salmon Creek Watersheds. Applicants wishing to utilize this mitigation resource should contact Habitat Bank for pricing and availability.
