A diverse mitigation credit portfolio to restore a dynamic landscape and provide sustainable development choices 

Wapato Valley Mitigation and Conservation Bank (sponsored by family-owned Plas Newydd, LLC) is an 876-acre multi-resource wetland mitigation and conservation bank located in the Columbia River floodplain in Clark County, Washington. Bank credits will be available starting in 2020 to offset future, unavoidable impacts from permitted development projects in the lower Columbia River region. Wapato Valley will provide credits for impacts to wetlands and other aquatic resources authorized under the Clean Water Act; federally-listed salmon and steelhead and their designated critical habitat under the Endangered Species Act; and Oregon white oak Priority Habitats under county-regulated Critical Area Ordinances.
