Review Documentation EDR Report and Historical Photos — December, 2019 1.0 Introduction The Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Site (Parcel) is a buffer restoration project located approximately 1.8 miles northeast of the Town of Farmville off Kittrell Hill Road, north of HWY 264 in Pitt County, NC (Figure 1). The Bank Parcel Development Package (BPDP) is being submitted for review under the Kittrell Hill Mitigation Banking Instrument (MBI) between the North Carolina Division of Water Resources (NCDWR) and EcoTerra, the Bank Sponsor. The project Parcel is approximately 18.6 acres (810,216 ft2) of a total 80 ac tract situated along a tributary of Oldwoman Branch, a direct tributary to Little Contentnea Creek. The project is located in a targeted local watershed (TLW) within the Neuse River basin hydrologic unit code (HUC) 03020203070030 and NCDWR Subasin 03-02-02. The Bank Parcel Development Package (BPDP) is being submitted for riparian buffer and nutrient offset credit in the service area designated by Neuse River Basin HUC 03020203 (Figure 8). An expected 369,338 ft2 riparain buffer credits (RBC) will be generated by the proposed Bank as well as 21,752.990 lbs nitrogen nutrient offset credits (NOC). The Parcel is located in the headwaters of an unnamed tributary that flows into Little Contentnea Creek, approximately one and half miles downstream of the project terminus. According to the N.C. Division of Mitigation Services' (DMS) Neuse River Basin Restoration Priorities (RBRP) document, amended 2018, the project will support the identified goals for the TLW, as well as the overall HUC. As stated in the RBRP, restoration of riparian buffers and adjacent riaprian areas to address agricultural runoff is a high priority for this 14-digit TLW HUC. The Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitgation Site will help to reduce future sediment and nutrient loading into the unnamed tributary and downstream Little Contentnea Creek. It will also improve terrestrial habitats along this stream by establishing a riparian corridor and allowing the land to undergo natural succession to forested community types. The area surrounding the stream is primarily agricultural fields. The project will restore forested riparian buffers and adjacent riparian areas to a maximum of approximately 200 feet from the streams and will remove rotating crops and fertilizer inputs. The restored Neuse River riparian buffer and surrounding riparian areas will filter runoff from the surrounding farm fields and provide shading to improve stream temperatures and aquatic habitat. Invasive vegetation will be treated as needed within the project area to promote native vegetation. 2.0 Mitigation Project Summary 2.1 Project Goals The major goals of the proposed buffer and adjacent riparian area restoration project are to address agricultural runoff, including nutrients and sediment, protect the project Parcel in perpetuity, and restore terrestrial habitat. The detailed goals and objectives are found below in Table 1. Table I.

Both UT1 and UT2 are characterized as ditches further upstream before draining into intermittent stream reaches (Figrue 2). The parcel is surrounded by fields currently in rotating row crops and early successional herbaceous and woody vegetation in the near stream region, and designated as agricultural use. UT1 enters the project site from the headwaters of a small drainage area, flatwood site and joins UT2 before going under Kittrell Hill Road and flowing into Oldwoman Branch. NCDWR staff visited the project Parcel on November 19, 2019 to determine subjectivity of on -site resources to the Neuse River buffer rules and their suitability for nutrient offset and riparian buffer mitigation per 15A NCAC 02B .0240 and the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule (15A NCAC 02B 0.0295), respectively. The NCDWR stream/buffer determination dated November 26, 2019 is located in the Appendix. The unnamed tributary was determined suitable for nutrient offset and riparian buffer mitigation in the Neuse River Basin (See Appendix). No changes to the riparian areas adjacent to each feature have changed since the NCDWR site visit in November. Project attributes associated with the proposed Parcel are provided in Table 2.

December 2021 MY3 Report Date December 21 MY 4 Report Date December 21 MY 5 Report Date December 21 The parcel tributary is nearly absent of any regenerating trees or woody shrubs within the riparian buffer. The tributary flows southwest into an existing riparian corridor along Oldwoman Branch, providing connectivity for the project including forested, terrestrial, and aquatic wildlife habitats. A drainage system consisting of pipes perpendicularly placed to the channels at 100 to 150-foot increments exists to drain excess surface water from the adjacent fields. The drainage pipes extended between eight and 12 feet in length into the fields. Several of the pipe inlets appeared to be compromised and are no longer conveying water as designed. Erosion and sediment -laden runoff is entering the channels in these areas. These pipes will be removed and stabilized as described in the parcel preparation section below. Both UTs are mapped on the Natural Resources Conservation Service's (MRCS) 1974 Pitt County Soil Survey (Figure 4) and the 2013 US Geological Survey's (USGS) Farmville Quadrangle (Figure 1) as stream channels. Historical aerials denote that land use, including the configuration of both channels, at the Project Site has been consistent since 1950 (Figure 5). There are two public use airports within a five -mile radius of the Project; Flanagan Field and Craft Air. The restoration of an upland riparian buffer is not expected to create issues with waterfowl for the nearby airports. A site assessment was conducted by Enrionmental Data Resources (EDR) to comply with standards set forth by EPA, ASTM, and other environmental due diligence requests to evaluate envronmental risk for the parcel. The report findings determined the site was not located in any Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. Additionally, no known potentially hazardous waste sites were identified within or immediately adjacent to the project site. The EDR report and historical photo log is located in the Appendix. 2.3 Watershed Characterization The Parcel is approximately 2.0 miles northeast of the Town of Farmville on the north side of HWY 264, as indicated on the Hartsease NC USGS 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle (Figure 1). All water conveyance features drain into Oldwoman Branch and tributary to Little Contentnea Creek, which is classified as Class C, swamp waters (Sw), and nutrient sensitive waters (NSW) by NCDWR. The Site is within a Neuse River TLW (HUC 03020203070030) as described in the DMS 2010 Neuse River RBRP, amended August 2018. According to the 2018 RBRP, nearly half of the 37-square mile drainage area consists of agriculturally related landuses and 42% of the land is either wetland or forested, including 6.3 square miles of unfragmented forest. The watershed has approximately 8.0% development with 1.2% denoted as impervious surface. There are 67 miles of stream channels in the drainage area and 41 % of those streams are not currently buffered. Pitt County remains mostly undeveloped aside from the areas in and surrounding the City of Greenville. The County's population has increased 6.5% since the 2010 census. e(5Wt__rra Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 3 February 2019 Drainage areas for the on -site stream and buffer areas were determined by delineating watersheds in USGS Stream Stats. The drainage appearing in Figure 3 shows the watershed boundary for the unnamed tributary. Table 3 describes the current land use and drainage area for the unnamed tributary. Table 3: Drainage Area and Land Use -4 Reach Name NCDWR Stream Restored Designation* UT1 & Intermittent (at 603,004 107 49% Agriculture least) 42% UT (ditch) Forested/Wetland Ditch UT2 & Intermittent (at 183,207 57 49% Agriculture least) 42% UT2 (ditch) Forested/Wetland Ditch Total: 18.0 ac (786,211) 2.4 Soils and Geology Elevations at and surrounding the Project Site are nearly level. Soils underlying the area are mapped as fine sandy loams, and consist of the Aycock, Exum, and Lynchburg series (Figure 4). Specific soil mapping units are listed in Table 4. Table 4: Parcel Soil Series .qrff JUMORTMmi,ii Aycock fine sandy loam, AyB2 1-6% slopes, eroded Exum fine sandy loam, ExA 0-1% slopes Exum fine sandy loam, ExB 1-6% slopes Lynchburg fine sandy loam, LyA 0-2% slopes The Aycock (AyB) and Exum (ExA/ExB) soils comprise the majority of the soils underlying the Project Site at 44% and 41%, respectively. These soils are linear in shape and occur on flats in marine terraces. The Aycock soil series is well drained and has a water table below 5.0 feet. The Exum soil series is moderately well drained and has a water table at a depth of 2.5 feet. An image of the printed (NRCS) 1974 soil survey map of the Project is shown in Figure 4. �i ecWtL-rra Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 4 February 2019 Geologically, the Project Site is located within the Rolling Coastal Plain of the Middle and Upper Coastal Plains physiographic province. Broad, flat terraces, adjacent to low -gradient stream channels, characterize both the Middle and Upper Coastal Plains. 2.5 Vegetation Vegetative communities within the project area consist of row crops and early successional, herbaceous and woody vegetation along the streams and ditches that are mowed and maintained. Vegetative present in the upper reach of UT1 consists of several FACW and OBL species. The wetter areas and near bank areas have vegetation adapted to wetter conditions in the channel and the interface of subsurface flow from adjacent agriculture fields. 2.6 Threatened and Endangered Species The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) identify six federally threatened and endangered species under the Endangered Species Act and one species under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act as potentially occurring in the project vicinity (Table 3). A review of the NC Natural Heritage Program (NCNHP) data dated December 2019 did not identify any known occurrences of federally listed species within one mile of the Project Site. A pedestrian survey was accomplished in October 2019 and determined there was no suitable or critical habitat for any of the listed species; therefore, the project will have "no effect" on the federally listed species. The USFWS Self - Certification Letter has been submitted to the USFWS Raleigh Field Office and is included in the Appendix.

The NC State Historic Preservation Office's (SHPO) online mapping resource was reviewed to determine the presence of known historic resources at or near the Project Site. According to the database, six resources occur within one mile of the Project; two being "survey only" sites, two are "surveyed gone" site, and two are identified as a "Study List" site. There are no known historical resources within the Al � rrCL Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 5 February 2019 Project Site. SHPO was also contacted for concurrence and review of the proposed project Parcel, which is included in the Appendix. 2.8 FEMA Floodplain Compliance The Parcel is not located within the 100-year floodplain and will not require FEMA coordination or a floodplain development permit. The Project will not encroach on the NCDOT right-of-way along Kittrell Hill Road. There are no other known easements at or near the Project Site that would prevent project implementation. 2.9 Parcel Constraints and Access The Parcel can be accessed via a farm field path off of Kittrell Hill Road for long-term access and site maintenance and monitoring. There are no other known constraints on the proposed project Parcel. 3.0 Site Protection Instrument and Long-term Management 3.1 Conservation Easement The property needed to restore the riparian buffer, access the easement, and manage the mitigation project includes 18.6 ac of the parcel listed in Table 6. The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long-term stewardship entity, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. 3.2 Long-term Trustee The long-term trustee and manager will be responsible for the periodic inspection of the Parcel to ensure the conservation easement is upheld and the land protected in perpetuity. 4.0 Mitigation Work Plan The project design will restore high quality riparian buffers along two unnamed tributaries to Oldwoman Branch and ultimately Little Contentnea Creek. The project will not have any adverse impacts to existing streams and water conveyances. Figure 6 depicts the planting plan for the Site. 4.1 Parcel Preparation The land proposed for buffer restoration is currently in agricultural production. The planting rows will be ripped to improve soil compaction prior to planting in the upland areas shown in Table 8. Pre -emergent herbicide approved for aquatic environments (i.e. Rodeo) will be applied by a licensed NC pesticide applicator in the tree rows to control potential herbaceous weed competition. Additional post planting e(5Wt__rra Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 6 February 2019 herbicide will be used within the planting rows for at least the first three years as needed and approved by NCDWR. The fields within the project area contain limited number of invasive plants and herbicide will only be sprayed in areas where there is an existing population of non-native invasive plant species. Abutting and immediately adjacent areas to the top of bank of the stream will not be ripped to prevent erosion and soil entering the surface water through runoff. As noted in the NCDWR Site Viability Assessment letter, several existing short twelve -inch galvanized pipes (10-12ft) will be removed and stabilized. Sediment and erosion control measures may be utilized if necessary in all areas with existing rills and unstable banks, as well as areas prone to erosion, to prevent any stormwater runoff from entering surface waters during construction. No DEMLR or local County permits are anticipated for removing the pipes and stabilizing compromised banks. Planting rows will be established on contour to impede surface water flows and prevent erosion. Additional sediment and erosion control measures may be utilized if necessary in other areas prone to erosion to prevent any stormwater runoff from entering surface waters during construction. In addition, an appropriate temporary seed mix will be applied as necessary to provide temporary ground cover for soil stabilization and reduction of sediment loss during rain events. 4.2 Restoration Activities The revegetation plan for the buffer restoration area will include restoring native tree species with bare root seedlings and seeding in the active farming areas. The Parcel will be planted to replicate a Coastal Plain Small Stream Swamp (blackwater subtype) and Floodplain riparian community with generally one planting zone that contains both floodplain and mesic species along with near bank stream species. Proposed tree species are shown in Table 7. Seeding will not be applied to areas with an existing native herbaceous layer.

Initial planting densities will be between 600-800 trees/ac. No individual tree species will be planted greater than 50% of the proposed stems. An Al Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 7 February 2019 appropriate temporary seed mix will also be applied and potential species are found in Table 7. An appropriate permanent seed mixture will be planted that may include species appropriate for beneficial pollinators, or act as larval hosts for pollinators such as butterflies (i.e. big bluesteam). Planting is scheduled to begin in the winter of 2020. Following planting of the restoration areas an as -built report will be submitted to NCDWR documenting the mitigation work plan to date. 4.3 Determination of Credits Credit generation on the parcel shown in Table 8 and Figure 7 are based on the top of bank of two unnamed tributaries and two agricultural ditches. All areas within 200 linear feet and landward of the top of banks will be planted and accounted as a type of mitigation or nutrient offset credit. The Kittrell Hill Parcel will generate a toatal of 369,338 ft2 of Neuse Riparian Buffer credits. Additionally, it will generate 416,873 ft2 (21,752.990 lbs-Nitrogen) of nutrient offset credits. Credit generation on the Parcel is summarized in Table 8. Credit reductions occur at both UT1 and UT2 ditch reaches according to the Diffuse Flow Memo (NCDEQ, August 19, 2008). Of the 786,211 ft2 of riparian restoration on this Parcel, 293,053 ft2 is located within 101-200 ft. Credits within this area are being requested for Nutrient Offset credits and therefore, cannot be converted and transferred into riparian buffer credits in accordance with the MBI. However, the 369,338 ft2 located within 0-100 ft on this Parcel can be used for either buffer credits or nutrient offset credits, but not both. Details on the credit generation summary are provided in Table 8. The Sponsor must request and receive approval from DWR prior to any credit conversions and transfers to the credit ledgers. With each conversion and transfer request submitted to the DWR, the Sponsor will provde all updated credit ledgers showing all transactions that have occurred prior to the date of the request. 5.0 Maintenance and Monitoring Plan The maintenance and monitoring plan was developed to demonstrate required performance standards and success criteria are met and project goals and objectives are achieved. 5.1 Performance Standards The performance standards for the proposed project follow approved ciriteria presented in the Consolidated Buffer Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0295). Annual monitoring and semi-annual site visits will be conducted to assess the condition of the finished project. Performance standards will be evaluated throughout the five-year post -construction monitoring period and summarized annually in a monitoring report. This annual report shall provide project data and chronicle issues that arise during the five-year montiroing period. The Sponsor shall submit annual monitoring reports to NCDWR by December 31st of each year for at least 5 consecutive years until project close-out, and will follow the terms and conditions of the Kittrell Hill Mitigation Banking Instrument (MBI). ecWtL-rra.

Plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted restoration areas. A total of seventeen (17) plots will be established within the planted restoration areas (Figure 6). The Consolidated Buffer Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0295) requires survival of at least 260 stems per acre at the end of a five year monitoring period. Seventeen (17) vegetation monitoring plots will be placed throughout the Site to document tree survivial. Vegetation monitoring will follow the CVS-EEP Protocol for Recording Vegetation (2008). Reference photographs of vegetation plots will be taken each year and there will be an additional five (17) photographs taken to document project condition and easement integrity. These photos will be taken at the same location and direction each year. Plots will be identified with flagging and durable PVC or metal markers during the monitoring period. Visual assessments will be performed twice a year during the five years of monitoring. Areas of concern, low stem density, invasive species or easement encroachment, will be mapped and photographed and described in the monitoring report. Problem areas will be re-evaluated during subsequent site visits. Table 9 summarizes the proposed monitoring plan components associated with this project. Table 9: Monitoring Plan Components Criteria Monitoring7success i Quantity Frequency Vegetation All 17 Annual CVS Level II/Photos Reference Stations Photos All 17 Annual Visual Visual Assessments All As needed Semi-annual Assessment/Photos The first annual report documenting the first growing season will be completed at least five months after planting has occurred and no earlier than the fall season. Species composition, height, and survival rates will be assessed for each monitoring plot and included in the annual report. Upon NCDWR approval, desirable native volunteer species may be included in the overall tree density for the Parcel to meet performance standards and success criteria. 5.3 Parcel Maintenance Actions will be taken to correct issues identified in the annual monitoring reports that jeopardize the success of the project such as tree survival and easement encroachment. Parcel maintenance activities will be included in annual reports. As noted in the Parcel Preparation section, effective herbicide application is critical to success of restoration areas, primarily historical agricultural land. Herbicides used will be aquatic approved as necessary and applied in accordance with the NCDA rules and regulations by a qualified NC licensed pesticide/herbicide applicator. If deemed necessary, mowing within Zones 1 and 2 of the Neuse basin buffers requires prior approval from NCDWR. It is anticipated mowing will be necessary on this historical agricultural land dedicated for buffer restoration. 5.4 Parcel Boundary Maintenance Conservation easement boundaries will be clearly marked with fencing, posts, paint, or other permanent material, and will include appropriate contact information on the boundaries. Boundaries between the easement and the remaining parcel in agriculture will ensure project protection and prevent encroachment. Boundary installation will occur at least by the completion of Task 2 as shown in Table 10. Boundary markers incidentally destroyed, damage, or disturbed will be repaired and/or replaced as needed during the monitoring period and in the future under long-term trustee management. All easement boundaries will be monitored twice a year as part of e(S' terrca. Kittrell Hill Nutrient Offset and Riparian Buffer Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020203 Page 10 February 2019 monitoring activities. Any easement encroachment or maintenance performed will be included in annual monitoring reports. 6.0 Financial Assurances and Credit Release 6.1 Performance and Maintenance Bonds Following approval of the Kittrell Hill Bank Parcel Development Package, the Sponsor shall provided a Performance Bond from a surety that is rated no less than an "A-" as rated by A.M. Best. The Performance Bond amount shall be 100% of the estimated cost for implementation of the project as described in the BPDP, but not less than $150,000.00. In lieu of posting the performance bond, the Sponsor may elect to construct the project prior to the first credit release. In that case no performance bond will be necessary. After completion of the restoration/construction, a separate Performance/Maintenance Bond will be secured for 100% of the estimated cost to implement the maintenance and monitoring plan for a term of one year and be extended annually for a minimum of five years.

The species list fulfills the requirements of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) under section 7(c) of the Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). New information based on updated surveys, changes in the abundance and distribution of species, changed habitat conditions, or other factors could change this list. Please feel free to contact us if you need more current information or assistance regarding the potential impacts to federally proposed, listed, and candidate species and federally designated and proposed critical habitat. Please note that under 50 CFR 402.12(e) of the regulations implementing section 7 of the Act, the accuracy of this species list should be verified after 90 days. This verification can be completed formally or informally as desired. The Service recommends that verification be completed by visiting the ECOS-IPaC website at regular intervals during project planning and implementation for updates to species lists and information. An updated list may be requested through the ECOS-IPaC system by completing the same process used to receive the enclosed list. Section 7 of the Act requires that all federal agencies (or their designated non-federal representative), in consultation with the Service, insure that any action federally authorized, funded, or carried out by such agencies is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any federally -listed endangered or threatened species. A biological assessment or evaluation may be prepared to fulfill that requirement and in determining whether additional consultation with the Service is necessary. In addition to the federally -protected species list, information on the species' life histories and habitats and information on completing a biological assessment or 12/19/2019 Event Code: 04EN2000-2020-E-00886 evaluation and can be found on our web page at http://www.fws.gov/raleigh. Please check the web site often for updated information or changes If your project contains suitable habitat for any of the federally -listed species known to be present within the county where your project occurs, the proposed action has the potential to adversely affect those species. As such, we recommend that surveys be conducted to determine the species' presence or absence within the project area. The use of North Carolina Natural Heritage program data should not be substituted for actual field surveys. If you determine that the proposed action may affect (i.e., likely to adversely affect or not likely to adversely affect) a federally -protected species, you should notify this office with your determination, the results of your surveys, survey methodologies, and an analysis of the effects of the action on listed species, including consideration of direct, indirect, and cumulative effects, before conducting any activities that might affect the species. If you determine that the proposed action will have no effect (i.e., no beneficial or adverse, direct or indirect effect) on federally listed species, then you are not required to contact our office for concurrence (unless an Environmental Impact Statement is prepared). However, you should maintain a complete record of the assessment, including steps leading to your determination of effect, the qualified personnel conducting the assessment, habitat conditions, site photographs, and any other related articles. Please be aware that bald and golden eagles are protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668 et seq.), and projects affecting these species may require development of an eagle conservation plan (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/ eagle_guidance.html). Additionally, wind energy projects should follow the wind energy guidelines (http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/) for minimizing impacts to migratory birds and bats. Guidance for minimizing impacts to migratory birds for projects including communications towers (e.g., cellular, digital television, radio, and emergency broadcast) can be found at: http:// www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/towers.htm; http:// www.towerkill.com; and http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/CurrentBirdlssues/Hazards/towers/ comtow.html. Not all Threatened and Endangered Species that occur in North Carolina are subject to section 7 consultation with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service. Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon, sea turtles,when in the water, and certain marine mammals are under purview of the National Marine Fisheries Service. If your project occurs in marine, estuarine, or coastal river systems you should also contact the National Marine Fisheries Service, http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ We appreciate your concern for threatened and endangered species. The Service encourages Federal agencies to include conservation of threatened and endangered species into their project planning to further the purposes of the Act. Please include the Consultation Tracking Number in the header of this letter with any request for consultation or correspondence about your project that you submit to our office.

Species on this list should be considered in an effects analysis for your project and could include species that exist in another geographic area. For example, certain fish may appear on the species list because a project could affect downstream species. IPaC does not display listed species or critical habitats under the sole jurisdiction of NOAA Fisheries1, as USFWS does not have the authority to speak on behalf of NOAA and the Department of Commerce. See the "Critical habitats" section below for those critical habitats that lie wholly or partially within your project area under this office's jurisdiction. Please contact the designated FWS office if you have questions. NOAA Fisheries, also known as the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), is an office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration within the Department of Commerce.

Land disturbing activities include site preparation for planting trees, with minor grading to remove existing draining pipes in place along the tributaries within an approximate 18.6 acre project easement. The NC State Historic Preservation Office's (SHPO) online mapping resource was reviewed to determine the presence of known historic resources at or near the Project Site. According to the database, six resources occur within one mile of the Project; two being "survey only" sites, two are "surveyed gone" site, and two are identified as a "Study List" site (Figure 5). There are no known historical resources within the Project Site. No historic property alteration is proposed with the project as planned. Historical landuse has been agriculture for the past nearly 80 years according to historical aerials from NRCS. The project conservation easement will ultimately be transferred to a land trust for long-term stewardship.
