|Lloyd Nutrient Bank|
The project site is located at the southwest quadrant of intersection of Holly Creek Land and Old Greensboro Road (SR 1005) in Orange County, North Carolina. The purpose of the bank parcel is to improve water quality within the B. Everett Jordan Lake watershed by providing off-site mitigation for development (both existing and proposed) requiring nutrient off-sets. The bank parcel is located in the Upper New Hope Arm of the B. Everett Jordan Lake Watershed, inside of 14-digit USGS HUC 030300020060070. Storm water runoff from this site drains into an unnamed tributary of Neville Creek, which drains into University Lake approximately Three (3) miles downstream. According to the N.C. DWQ basin wide Information Management System (BIMS), Neville Creek is classified as WS-II; HQW, NSW I this location.
The restored riparian zone were be planted with bare roots seedlings or containerized material consisting of bottomland hardwood species. According to the Schafale and Weakly Publication, “very few bottomlands of any significant size remain, while many bottomland exists as successional forest grown up in abandoned fields, intact bottomland forests are among the rarest communities in North Carolina.
The Lloyd Nutrient Mitigation bank will generate 2273 pounds of nutrient off-site per acre.
