Bank Parcel Development Plan page 1 Introduction Restoration Systems (Sponsor) is pleased to provide this Bank Parcel Development Plan (BPDP) for the Benton Branch Bank Parcel (Parcel), proposed as part of the Restoration Systems’ Phase One Haw River WS Umbrella Banking Instrument (Banking Instrument) signed October 25th, 2017 between Restoration Systems, and the North Carolina Division of Water Resources (DWR). This Parcel is designed to provide riparian buffer and nutrient offset mitigation credits for unavoidable impacts due to development within the Haw River Sub-watershed of Jordan Lake, Cape Fear River Basin per the Jordan Lake Water supply Nutrient Strategy (15A NCAC 02B .0267 & 15A NCAC 02B .0268). Supporting figures can be found in Appendix A. The Parcel shall be planned and designed according to the Banking Instrument with DWR, 15A NCAC 02B .0240, and the Consolidated Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B.0295, which became effective on November 1, 2015. The BPDP has also been designed in concurrence with the Benton Branch Stream and Wetland Mitigation Bank (SAW# 2015-01701). The mitigation plan for the Benton Branch Stream and Wetland Mitigation Bank along with the Stream and Wetland Umbrella Mitigation Banking Instrument was approved by the Interagency Review Team on July, 6th 2017. The Section 404 (Clean Water Act, 33 USC 1344) was granted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on June 30th, 2017, the corresponding Section 401 Water Quality Certification was granted on June 28th, 2017 and the land quality letter of approval was granted June 20th, 2017. Copies of these permits can be found in Appendix G. Stormwater runoff from the Parcel drains directly to Benton Branch and unnamed tributaries to Benton Branch. According to the Final Cape Fear River Basin Restoration Priorities (NCEEP 2009), this watershed should be targeted for restoration to protect the nutrient sensitive watershed that ultimately drains into the nutrient sensitive water supply at Jordan Lake. According to the Cape Fear River Basinwide Water Quality Plan (NCDWQ 2005), all land uses and discharges of wastewater and stormwater in subbasin 03- 06-02 potentially contribute nutrients to B. Everett Jordan Lake. B. Everett Jordan Lake provides low-flow augmentation, flood control, recreation, fish and wildlife habitat, and water supply. The lake is impaired for aquatic life due to excessive levels of chlorophyll a in violation of current standards in all segments of the reservoir. In addition, the Parcel has a supplemental water quality classification of Nutrient Sensitive Waters, which includes areas with water quality problems associated with excessive plant growth resulting from nutrient enrichment. The proposed Mitigation Activities will reduce sediment and nutrient levels, and improve water quality within the Parcel and their downstream watersheds. For purposes of the Benton Branch Nutrient Offset & Buffer Bank, the Parcel involves restoring riparian buffers and other riparian areas adjacent to mitigated streams onsite in order to help reduce non-point source contaminant discharges to downstream waters in the Haw River sub-watershed of Jordan Lake. All riparian areas were assessed by DWR during an onsite visit to determine viability for buffer mitigation and nutrient offset (DWR Site Viability Letter, Appendix A). Approximately 33.22 acres will be protected with a permanent conservation easement. Of those 33.22 acres, 10.92 acres will be restored for Jordan riparian buffer credit, 0.02 acre will be restored for nutrient offset credit, 9.51 acres will be enhanced by the removal of cattle from the streams and riparian areas for Jordan riparian buffer credit, and 5.37 acres will be preserved for Jordan riparian buffer credit. In general, riparian restoration/enhancement area widths on streams will extend out to a maximum of 100 feet from the top of bank with a minimum width of 20 from top of banks. Riparian buffer enhancement and preservation credits generated on this Bank Parcel are allowed pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o). Neither the enhancement credits nor the preservation credits can be used to generate nutrient offset credits. Additionally, no riparian restoration areas that are less than 50 feet wide from Top of Banks can be used to generate nutrient offset credit, and no riparian restoration areas that are less than 20 feet wide from Top of Banks can be used to generate riparian buffer credit. Therefore, the maximum acreage of riparian restoration on this site that is able to be converted into nutrient offset credits if needed by RS, is 10.91 acres. Figures 6 and 7 show the Credit Determination Map and Section 6.0 provides details of the mitigation determination on the Bank Parcel. Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 2 The Sponsor may elect to use these riparian areas for either buffer mitigation credit or wetland mitigation credit, but not both. The Sponsor must submit a written request and receive written approval from DWR prior to any credit conversions and transfers to the buffer credit ledger. As part of that request, the Sponsor must provide DWR with a written acceptance letter from the USACE, accompanied by supporting documents, for any wetlands that they want removed from the wetland mitigation bank. Only riparian areas that fail to qualify to generate wetland credit may be viable for generating riparian buffer credit. Figure 6 depicts riparian areas that could potentially generate riparian buffer credit if they don't qualify to genera te wetland mitigation credits, and Figure 8 (Appendix A) depicts the potential conversion of failed wetland mitigation credits to riparian buffer credits. Any areas proposed for buffer mitigation credit must meet the performance standards detailed in 15A NCAC 0295. 1.1 Parcel Location Located in the South Atlantic/Gulf Region approximately 12 miles north of Burlington, NC in southwest Caswell County (Figure 1, Appendix A), the Parcel is hydrologically situated within the USGS 14 -digit HUC 03030002030030 of the Cape Fear River Basin and Jordan Lake’s Haw Sub-Watershed (North Carolina Division of Water Quality Subbasin Number 03-06-02). Directions to the Parcel (from Burlington):  Take Holt St./NC-62 toward N. Fishe St. – 0.1 mile  Continue on Rauhut St./NC-62 – 3.2 miles  Turn left on Union Ridge Rd. – 6.0 miles  Turn left on Stoney Mountain Rd. – 2.3 miles  Stoney Mountain Rd becomes Stoney Creek Mountain Rd. – 0.9 mile  Stoney Creek Mountain Rd. becomes Milesville Rd. – 1.4 miles  Turn left on Massey Rd. Parcel Coordinates: 36.278744, -79.419371 1.2 Parcel Overview The Parcel encompasses 33.22 acres of land containing Benton Branch and unnamed tributaries to Benton Branch. According to the Final Cape Fear River Basin Restoration Priorities (NCEEP 2009), this watershed should be targeted for restoration to protect the nutrient sensitive waters that ultimately drain into the nutrient sensitive water supply of Jordan Lake. Overall, the purposes of the Benton Branch Buffer and Nutrient Offset Bank is to restore, enhance, and preserve riparian buffers and other riparian areas adjacent to mitigated streams onsite. The riparian restoration and enhancement will result in improved water quality within the Parcel and the downstream watershed. The Parcel is located in a region of the state dominated by agriculture and livestock; restoration of the riparian buffer is expected to result in immediate water quality benefits within the vicinity of the Parcel through the removal of livestock access to Parcel streams. Benton Branch and UTs 4, 5, and 6 are present onsite and were deemed subject to the Jordan Lake Buffer Protection Rule (15A NCAC 02B .0267 & 15A NCAC 02B .0268) by DWR in correspondence dated July 21, 2017 (DWR Site Viability Letter, Appendix A). UTs 1, 2, 2b, 3, 4a, and 4b were not assessed for buffer subjectivity due to factors onsite that made it difficult to determine location and continuity. The drainage area of the streams onsite ranges from 0.03 mi² to 1.4 mi². Additional present and historical land use practices including the maintenance and removal of riparian vegetation and the relocation, dredging and straightening of onsite streams resulted in degraded water quality and unstable channel characteristics (stream entrenchment, erosion, bank collapse, and stream aggradation). Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 3 Project Area – Existing Conditions 2.1 Physiography Situated within the Southern Outer Piedmont portion of the Piedmont Ecoregion of North Carolina, the Parcel’s regional physiography is characterized by dissected irregular plains; low rounded hills and ridges; and low to moderate gradient streams with mostly cobble, gravel, and sandy substrates. On-site elevations range from a high of 645-feet NGVD at the upper reaches of UT 3 to a low of approximately 620-feet NGVD at the Parcel outfall (USGS Cherry Grove, North Carolina 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle). Surrounding land use consists primarily of agricultural land, with some low-density residential housing (Figure 3, Appendix A) Historically, livestock had indiscriminate access to most of the Parcel streams, resulting in degradation of stream banks. Riparian vegetation adjacent to tributaries was sparse and disturbed due to livestock grazing, bush hogging, and regular maintenance activities. In addition to livestock grazing, the areas surrounding UT-1, UT-2B, and UT-3 were used for City of Burlington, NC Wastewater effluent disposal. These conditions were confirmed by Katie Merritt (NCDWR) during a June 13, 2017 site visit and in the accompanying viability letter (Appendix A). Mature forest is scattered throughout the Parcel and is depicted on Figure 4 (Appendix A). 2.2 Soils NRCS has not completed detailed soil mapping for Caswell County. The most recent published soil survey for Caswell County is dated 1908, with general soil mapping conducted countywide. The NRCS depicts the Parcel as being underlain by Cecil sandy loam in floodplains and low-lying areas, with Cecil sandy clay and Iredell sandy loam in the adjacent uplands; Parcel soils are depicted on Figure 2 (Appendix A) and described below in Table 1. Table 1. Parcel Soils Soil Series Hydric Status Description Cecil sandy loam and Cecil sandy clay Nonhydric The Cecil series consists of very deep, well-drained, moderately permeable soils on ridges and side slopes of Piedmont uplands. They formed in residuum weathered from felsic, igneous, and high-grade metamorphic rocks of Piedmont uplands. Slopes range from 0 to 25 percent. Iredell sandy loam Nonhydric This series is brownish-gray or very dark brown, moderately well-drained, medium acid soils of the Piedmont Plateau. These soils occur wherever the geologic formation contains basic dikes. These soils are important to agriculture. 2.3 Vegetation The Parcel is characterized primarily by actively grazed pasture and municipal effluent disposal, with scattered disturbed forest. Agricultural land is maintained for livestock grazing and has been planted with fescue (Festuca sp.). Natural recruits of dog fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium), clover (Trifolium sp.), nightshade (Solanum carolinense), as well as other opportunistic herbaceous species have recolonized the Parcel. Several pockets of wetland occur in the Parcel, which are characterized by rushes (Juncus spp.) and sedges (Carex spp.). Disturbed forest is largely cleared of understory species due to livestock pruning and is composed of sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), Chinese privet (Ligustrum sinense), winged elm (Ulmus alata), Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana), persimmon (Diospyros virginiana), dog fennel, and broomsedge (Andropogon sp.). Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 4 2.4 Threatened and Endangered Species Species with the classification of Endangered (E), Threatened (T), or officially Proposed (P) for such listing are protected under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA), as amended (16 U.S. C. 1531 et seq.). Two federally protected species are listed as occurring in Caswell County (USFWS 2015): the James spinymussel (Pleurobema collina) and the Roanoke logperch (Percina rex). Both species are listed as Endangered. James Spinymussel This freshwater mussel is limited to the James River drainage and the Dan/Mayo River drainage within the Roanoke River basin in Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia. This species’ range does not include the Parcel, which is located in the Upper Cape Fear River drainage. Roanoke Logperch In North Carolina, this species is found in the Dan and Mayo rivers, as well as Big Beaver Island Creek. This species’ range does not include the Parcel, which is located in the Upper Cape Fear River drainage. Preliminary Biological Conclusions: Neither of these species’ ranges extend into areas adjacent to, or within the Parcel. Therefore, this project will have no effect on these federally protected species. 2.5 State Listed Species NC Wildlife Resource Commission (NCWRC) notes records for the state special concern notched rainbow (Villosa constricta) and the state significantly rare Carolina ladle crayfish (Cambarus davidi) in Benton Branch. Therefore, stringent sediment and erosion control measures will be implemented throughout restoration/construction activities. 2.6 Environmental, Cultural, and Site Constraints The presence of conditions or characteristics with the potential to hinder restoration activities on the Parcel was evaluated. The evaluation focused primarily on the presence of hazardous materials, utilities and restrictive easements, rare/threatened/endangered species or critical habitats, cultural resources, and the potential for hydrologic trespass. Existing information regarding constraints was acquired and reviewed. In addition, any parcel conditions with the potential to restrict design and implementation were documented during field investigations. Areas surrounding UT-1, UT-2B, and UT-3 were used for City of Burlington, NC Wastewater effluent disposal. RS has provided written notification to the City of Burlington that wastewater effluent can no longer be disposed of at the Bank Parcel (Appendix F). No other evidence of natural and/or man -made conditions were identified which have the potential to impede proposed restoration activities. State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) mapping was reviewed and two sites (Davis House and Harris Chapel Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery) are just over 1.0 mile southeast of the Parcel (Appendix C). Parcel mitigation will have no impacts to these or any other documented cultural resources. Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 5 2.7 FEMA Floodplain/Floodway Mapping Inspection of the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map 371089600K, Panel 8960, effective September 28, 2007, indicates that Benton Branch, UT 3, and associated floodplains are located within a Zone AE flood area. Therefore, a HEC-RAS analysis will be completed on the existing and proposed conditions of Benton Branch and its tributaries that enter the Benton Branch floodplain to assess hydraulic performance. In accordance with N.C. Floodplain Mapping requirements, a Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) will need to be prepared for the Parcel. The CLOMR will include written documentation of modeling, preparation of topographic work maps, annotated FIRM or Floodway Maps, FIRM Flood Profiles and Data Tables. The CLOMR will be sent to Caswell County for approval and signature, and then the CLOMR will be sent to FEMA for review and approval. The CLOMR approval process is expected to require 3 to 6 months. The CLOMR will be prepared, submitted, and approved prior to construction. A requirement of the CLOMR is to prepare and submit a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) once construction is complete. Riparian Restoration, Enhancement, and Preservation Plan This site is also being proposed as a stream and wetland mitigation bank; therefore, r estoration of riparian areas will be accomplished through the goals and methods outlined by the Cape Fear 02 Umbrella Mitigation Bank, Benton Branch Stream and Wetland Bank Site Mitigation Plan and the Phase One Haw River WS Umbrella Banking Instrument. All applicable federal, state, and local documentation, permits, and/or authorizations will be acquired as part of implementing the above-mentioned mitigation plan and will be provided to the Division. Primary goals focus on 1) improving water quality, 2) enhancing flood attenuation and hydrology, 3) improving aquatic resources, and 4) restoring riparian habitat. Proposed mitigation activities will provide floodplain connectivity, floodplain resistance, stream stability, sediment transport, surface and subsurface storage and retention, in-stream habitat, riparian habitat and structure, thermal regulation, floodplain biogeochemical processing, and pollutant filtration as well as remove sources of pollutants. The riparian area will be restored through the revegetation of nat ive plant communities. Detailed analysis of plant communities and the planting plan follow. All riparian restoration activities will commence in concurrence with the stream mitigation activities and not before. Therefore, the mitigation area where riparian restoration is being performed may be altered slightly depending on the approval of the Stream Mitigation Plan for the Stream Mitigation Bank. The riparian restoration areas will be surveyed and information provided in the As -Built report. Areas where existing mature vegetation will potentially be negatively impacted by stream restoration activities are not eligible for riparian buffer restoration credit; however, are eligible for riparian buffer enhancement via cattle exclusion credit (Figure 6, Appendix A). 3.1 Riparian Area Restoration Activities Stream-side trees include species with a high value for sediment stabilization, rapid growth rate, and the ability to withstand hydraulic forces associated with bankfull flow and overbank flood events. Stream-side trees and shrubs will be planted along reconstructed stream banks and concentrated along outer bends. Planted vegetation along cleared stream banks will reestablish native/historic community patterns within the stream corridor, associated side slopes, and transition areas. Revegetating Parcel floodplains and stream banks will provide stream bank stability, give shade, reduce surface water temperatures, filter pollutants from adjacent runoff, and provide habitat for area wildlife (Figures 4 and 5, Appendix A). In general, riparian restoration will extend out a maximum of 100 feet perpendicular to the top of banks with a minimum width of 20 feet from top of banks. Additionally, no riparian restoration areas that are less than 50 feet wide from Top of Banks can be used to generate nutrient offset credit, and no riparian restoration areas that are less than 20 feet wide from top of banks can be used to generate riparian buffer credit. Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 6 Riparian Buffer Restoration will occur on the site as follows (Figures 6-7, Appendix A). Note that all areas of restoration from TOB to 29 feet will extend a minimum of 20 feet from TOB, and all areas of restoration from TOB to 100 feet will extend a minimum of 30 feet from the TOB. Benton Branch: TOB-29 feet and TOB-100 feet UT-1: TOB-100 feet UT-2: TOB-100 feet UT-2B: TOB-100 feet UT-3: TOB-100 feet UT-4: TOB-100 feet UT-4A: TOB-100 feet UT-4B: TOB-100 feet UT-5: TOB-100 feet UT-6: TOB-100 feet Nutrient Offset Credit is being generated on a small area of UT-4B that is located from 100-200 feet from the TOB (Figure 6, Appendix A). Variations in vegetative planting will occur based on topographic locations and hydraulic conditions of the soil. Vegetative species composition will mimic reference forest data, onsite observations, and community descriptions from Classification of the Natural Communities of North Carolina (Schafale and Weakley 1990). Community associations to be utilized include 1) Piedmont Alluvial Forest, 2) Dry-Mesic Oak- Hickory Forest, and 3) stream-side assemblage. Deep-rooted, riparian vegetation will be planted over 21.7 acres of the Parcel. Species selected for planting will be dependent upon availability of local seedling sources. Seedlings from a local source (within 200 miles) will be obtained from a licensed nursery and planted at the Parcel. Advance notification to nurseries (1 year) helped to facilitate availability of various noncommercial elements. Bare-root seedlings of tree species were planted within the Dry-Mesic Oak-Hickory Forest and Piedmont Alluvial Forest at a density of approximately 680 stems per acre on 8-foot centers. Species in the stream- side assemblage community were planted at a density of 2,720 stems per acre on 3-foot centers. Planting is anticipated to be performed between November 15 and March 15 to allow plants to stabilize during the dormant period and set root during the spring season. A detailed planting list is depicted below in Table 2, and the planting area is graphically on Figure 5 of Appendix A. 3.2 Riparian Buffer Enhancement via Cattle Exclusion Activities Riparian buffer enhancement will include permanently protecting existing riparian buffer from livestock via exclusionary fencing, cutting, clearing, filling, grading, and any similar activities that would affect the functionality of the riparian buffer (Figure 6, Appendix A). These areas are primarily described as disturbed mixed hardwoods. Buffer credits sought in the enhancement area, allowed pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(6), will only be used toward buffer mitigation and cannot be transferred into nutrient offset credits. The enhancement area will extend a maximum of 200 feet from the top of bank with a minimum width of 20 from top of banks. Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 7 Table 2.

Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 8 3.3 Riparian Buffer Preservation Activities Riparian buffer preservation will include permanently protecting existing riparian buffer from cutting, clearing, filling, grading, and any similar activities that would affect the functionality of the riparian buffer. Areas specified for Preservation, as defined in 15A NCAC 02B .0295, are shown in Figure 6 (Appendix A) and will only generate buffer mitigation. These areas are prima rily described as disturbed mixed hardwoods, with the number of high value species above 200 per acre. They are areas where livestock are currently fenced out, and there has been little or no historic livestock access. Buffer credits sought in the preservation area will only be used toward buffer mitigation and cannot be transferred into nutrient offset credits. 3.4 Marsh Treatment Area One marsh treatment area will be constructed to intercept surface waters draining through agricultural areas prior to discharging into UT3. The marsh treatment area is excluded from credit calculations (Figures 5-6, Appendix A). 3.5 Credit Release Schedule Table 3. Credit Release Schedule * For specification, please see Section V in the UMBI ** DWR Approval provided upon determination that the site is meeting performance standards contained within the approved BPDP Monitoring and Maintenance Plan 4.1 Monitoring Protocol Restoration monitoring procedures for vegetation will include periodic visual inspection and annual plant survival and species diversity survey reports. Quantitative sampling of vegetation will be performed as outlined in the CVS Level 1-2 Protocol for Recording Vegetation, Version 4.2 (Lee et al. 2008). Photos will be taken from all photo points each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. All planted stems in the plots will be marked with flagging tape and recorded. Detailed qualitative and quantitative monitoring is proposed for vegetated riparian areas; marsh treatment areas will be visually inspected periodically and reported qualitatively within the annual monitor report, which will include photographic record of the Parcel’s assets.

Bank Parcel Development Plan page 9 Monitoring of the restoration efforts will be performed for five years or until success criteria are fulfilled. Restoration Systems shall submit an annual monitoring report to DWR, no later than December 31st of each year. Quantitative monitoring will include measurements of 11-10x10 meter, permanently monumented vegetation plots (2.5% of restoration and nutrient offset credit areas). They will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas and will be representative of the entire top of bank back two - hundred feet, more or less. Sampling of vegetation will be performed in October of each year, with the 1st monitoring data to be collected in October of 2018 but not within 6 months from initial planting. During the first year, vegetation will receive a cursory, visual evaluation on a periodic basis to ascertain the degree of overtopping of planted elements by nuisance species. Success criteria within the riparian buffer and nutrient offset restoration areas will be based on the survival of planted species at a density of 260 stems per acre after five years of monitoring. In addition, appropriate volunteer stems of native hardwood tree and shrub species may be included to meet the final performance standard of 260 stems per acre upon DWR approval. A visual assessment of the cattle exclusion and preservation areas within the conservation easement will also be performed each year to confirm: • Fencing is in good condition throughout the site; • no cattle access within the conservation easement area; • no encroachment has occurred; • diffuse flow is being maintained in the conservations easement area; and • there has not been any cutting, clearing, filling, grading, or similar activities that would negatively affect the functioning of the buffer. 4.2 Parcel Maintenance A remedial action plan will be developed and implemented with the approval of NCDWQ in the event that the Parcel or a specific component of the Parcel fails to achieve success criteria as outlined above. Other vegetation maintenance and repair activities may include pruning, mulching, and fertilizing. In the event that exotic invasive plant species require treatment, such species will be controlled by mechanical (physical removal with the use of a chainsaw) and/or chemical methods (aquatic approved herbicide) in accordance with North Carolina Department of Agriculture (NCDA) rules and regulations. If mowing is deemed necessary by the Sponsor for vegetation survival of planted stems during the monitoring period, the Sponsor must receive approval by the DWR prior to any mowing activities within Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the Jordan buffers to ensure that no buffer violations have been performed. Failure to receive approval prior to mowing activities within the Jordan buffer as defined in 15A NCAC 02B .0267 by the DWR, could result in Jordan buffer violations and violations of the conservation easement. If necessary, the Sponsor will develop a species-specific control plan 4.3 Long Term Management Plan A Permanent Conservation Easement will preserve all areas and prohibit all use of the property inconsistent with its use as mitigation property including any activity that would materially alter the biological integrity of the Parcel. The North Carolina Wildlife Habitat Foundation (NCWHF) has agreed to be holder of the easement. The Sponsor will provide an endowment to the NCWHF to hold and enforce the Conservation Easement and its interests in perpetuity. The Conservation Easement was recorded on December 12, 2015 at the Caswell County courthouse in Deed Book 589, Page 438-451 (Appendix E.) The conservation easement on this Bank Parcel was not approved by the DWR prior to recordation and may not be consistent with the standards employed by the State of North Carolina. Therefore, the Bank Benton Branch. Bank Parcel Development Plan page 10 Sponsor will ensure that the Conservation Easement is revised if needed to ensure it allows for the implementation of the Benton Branch Mitigation Bank, the Benton Branch Bank Parcel Development Package, and will grant all rights to both the Grantee and the NCDWR. Additional changes to the conservation easement will be determined in consultation with RS and the NCDWR. The conservation easement shall be approved by the DWR and the USACE prior to the credit release. 4.4 Easement Boundaries and Fencing Easement boundaries will be identified in the field to ensure clear distinction between the Parcel and adjacent properties. Boundaries may be identified by cattle fence, marker, bollard, post, tree-blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement. Boundary markers disturbed, damaged, or destroyed will be repaired and/or replaced on an as needed basis. Financial Assurance Per the Credit Release Schedule outlined in Section 3.5 and per the Banking Instrument, Restoration Systems intends to forgo the release of Task 1 credits and acquisition of a Performance Bond. Restoration Systems will complete the restoration/construction and upon submittal of the As-built Report will provide a Performance/Maintenance Bond, with DWR as the Obligee, and per the requirements of the Banking Instrument. The Performance Bond will be a minimum of 100k and will be renewed annually. Performance bonds for monitoring shall be renewed to cover the next years monitoring period, with confirmation of renewal provided to DWR with each annual monitoring report when applicable. DWR reserves the right to alter the credit release schedule if monitoring reports are submitted without proof of bond renewals when applicable. Mitigation Potential The Benton Branch Bank will provide Jordan buffer mitigation credits and nutrient offset mitigation credits for development impacts within the Haw River Sub-watershed of Jordan Lake (Figures 6-7 and DWR Site Viability Letter, Appendix A). The width of the credit generation areas will begin at the most landward limit of the top of bank or the rooted herbaceous vegetation and extend landward a maximum distance of 200 feet where Restoration Systems is able. No buffer mitigation credit generation areas will be less than 20 feet in width and no nutrient offset credit generating areas will be less than 50 feet from TOB. Buffer Mitigation credits generated from riparian restoration in non-forested pasture areas on this Bank Parcel with a minimum width of 50 feet from TOB, can be converted and transferred from Riparian Buffer Credits to Nutrient Offset Credits and from Nutrient Offset Credit to Riparian Buffer Credits upon written approval from DWR. A maximum of 10.91 acres of riparian restoration on this site is able to be converted and transferred from Riparian Buffer Credits to Nutrient Offset Credits and from Nutrient Offset Credit back to Riparian Buffer Credits upon approval. The Sponsor must submit a written request and receive written approval from DWR prior to any credit conversions and transfers to the buffer and nutrient credit ledgers. All delivery factors shall be applied to nutrient offset credits prior to requesting a conversion. According to the nutrient reduction goals for the Haw River arm of Jordan Lake, the generated nitrogen credits per acre in the Haw Sub-watershed for riparian restoration on agriculture land is 2249.36 pounds and the generated phosphorus credit per acre is 143.81 pounds. The delivery factors applied to this parcel are 25 percent for nitrogen and 8 percent from phosphorus (Appendix B). Delivered credits are calculated by applying the delivery factors and the acreage of riparian restoration to the generated credits per acre stated above. Proposed areas for Jordan riparian buffer and nutrient offset (Nitrogen and Phosphorus) credits for the Benton Branch Bank Parcel are summarized in the table below and corresponding Figures 6 and 7 (Appendix A).

Beyond buffer credit generating areas, RS is proposing nutrient offset credits out to a maximum of 200 feet for a contiguous riparian restoration from top of bank to 200 feet where possible. The Sponsor will maintain four (4) credit ledgers, if applicable, for the Parcel under the UMBI: one (1) for Buffer Restoration mitigation credits and one (1) for Buffer Preservation and Enhancement mitigation credits, both in square feet and acres, (1) accounting for nitrogen offset credits in pounds and acres, and (1) accounting for phosphorus offset credits in pounds and acres.

Cessation of Effluent within Conservation Easement Areas. Dear Mr. Fletcher: Restoration Systems is sending this letter and attachments on behalf of Dennis Simmons, who the City of Burlington currently holds an agreement with to spray effluent over his parcels located at the interchange of Massey Rd. and Milesville Rd; Caswell County Map and Parcel: 0044 067. Restoration Systems purchased a conservation easement over 33.14 acres of Mr. Simmons’ property to restore and protect the streams and adjacent riparian areas in perpetuity. The easement was recently assigned to the North Carolina Wildlife Habitat Foundation (NCWHF). The easement prohibits the spraying of effluent, and as such, the City will no longer be able to use these areas for discharge. The easement does not prevent the discharge of effluent outside of the easement boundaries, and the City will be able to continue its practices so long as Mr. Simmons is in agreement. Stream restoration construction activities are scheduled to begin late Fall 2017 and are completed by April 2018. Once completed, the easement boundary will be delineated with NCWHF easement signs, fencing and permanent monuments. I have attached a property map overview via Caswell County’s online GIS mapping service, a copy of the Conservation Easement Assignment, a copy of the recorded plat, and a Google Earth layer of the easement. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 919-755- 9490. Sincerely, Worth Creech Project Manager Attachments: - Property Map via Caswell County Online - Recorded Conservation Easement Assignment to NCWHF - Recorded Plat - Google Earth file of Easement Boundary Benton Branch.
