Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27620 RE: DWR Draft BPDP Comments Long Pond Branch Mitigation Site (DWR # 2019-1639v2) Johnston County, NC Dear Ms. Merritt: Wildlands Engineering, Inc. (Wildlands) has reviewed the Division of Water Resources (DWR) comments dated November 3, 2020 for the Draft Bank Parcel Development Plan (BPDP) for the Long Pond Branch Mitigation Site. The DWR comments are listed below in bold, while Wildlands responses are noted in italics lettering. 1. There is no mentioning of unstable banks along Ditch A at its confluence with Ditch B. According to the viability letter this needs to be addressed. Since it is a ditch, no buffer authorization or permit would be required. Please explain how wildlands intends to stabilize the banks. Correction has been made. The bank will be stabilized and minor grading performed in the area along Ditch A at its confluence with Ditch be along with the culvert removal on Ditch B. 2. Identify the temporary and permanent seeding Wildlands intends to us. Temporary seeding includes rye grain and German millet. Permanent seeding includes a mix of pollinator friendly species as well. A list of potential seed types is included in the report. 3. Remove tree from planting list since there is no justification to needing it on the is site. Bald Cypress are not hardwoods and therefore would not be able to be counted towards performance standards. If Wildlands still prefers to plant Cypress they can but it cannot be counted towards the performance criteria. Bald Cypress has been replaced with Shumard Oak (Quercus shumardii). 4. There is not plot proposed on Figure 9 to be located within the Enhancement Area receiving buffer credit. Please place one of your plots within this area. Figure 9 was updated so that one vegetation plot was moved to the enhancement area. 5. Language Added "enhancement and" 6. Language Added "enhancement areas and will be randomly placed such that the plots are representative of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset". 7.

Bank Parcel Development Package Long Pond Mitigation Bank Parcel Neuse River Basin Wildlands Holdings III 1.0 Project Introduction The Long Pond Mitigation Bank Parcel ("Parcel") is proposed under the terms and conditions of the Long Pond Nutrient Offset and Buffer Mitigation Banking Instrument ("MBI"), made and entered into by Wildlands Holdings III, LLC acting as Bank Sponsor ("Sponsor") and the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality ("NCDE(X") Division of Water Resources ("NCDWR"). The Parcel shall be planned and designed according to the MBI, 15A NCAC 0213.0240, 15A NCAC 0213.0703, and the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 which became effective November 1, 2015. The project is in Wayne County approximately 9 miles east of the town of Newton Grove (Figure 1). The Parcel creates a protected riparian area from top of bank out to 200 feet on along Long Pond Branch, one unnamed tributary, and one ditch. The primary purpose of the project is to provide riparian buffer mitigation credits and nutrient offset credits to compensate for unavoidable impacts in the Neuse River Basin 03020201 Hydrologic Unit Code ("HUC") outside the Falls Lake Watershed (Figure 2). 1.1 Parcel Location and Description The Parcel is located within the Neuse River Basin HUC 03020201170030 and NCDWR Subbasin 03-04-12 in Wayne County. To reach the Parcel from the City of Raleigh, Directions: Travel East approximately 43 miles on 1-40 E from the City of Raleigh. Take exit 341 towards Newton Grove, keep left at the fork and continue for 9.7 miles. At the traffic circle in the Township of Grantham, take the third left. In one (1) mile turn left onto Dobbersville Rd and after 0.7 miles turn right onto Britt Road, the Parcel is on either side of the road after 0.2 miles. Long Pond Branch and the other project features are located on the headwaters of Thoroughfare Swamp which flows into Falling Creek, which subsequently flows into the Neuse River. Thoroughfare Swamp is classified as nutrient sensitive waters ("NSW") by NCDWR. The proposed project supports specific goals identified in the 2018 Neuse River Basin Restoration Priorities Plan (RBRP) by promoting "nutrient and sediment reduction in agricultural areas by restoring and preserving wetlands, streams and riparian buffers". This riparian mitigation project will reduce sediment and nutrient loading, provide and improve terrestrial and instream habitats, and improve stream and bank stability. The area surrounding the streams proposed for mitigation is predominantly open agricultural fields typically planted in soybeans and corn (See the Appendix for December 2019 and February 2020 site photos). Restoring the riparian area up to 200 feet from the streams and ditch will reduce nutrient and sediment inputs in the tributaries to Thoroughfare Swamp, and subsequently Falling Creek and the Neuse River. The restored floodplain areas will filter sediment during high rainfall events and provide cover and food for wildlife throughout the Parcel. WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 1 November 2020 2.0 Mitigation Project Summary 2.1 Project Goals The major goals of the proposed buffer and nutrient offset mitigation project are to provide ecological and water quality enhancements to the Neuse River Basin by restoring the riparian area to create a functional riparian corridor. Specific enhancements to water quality and ecological processes are outlined below in Table 1. Table 1: Ecological and Water Quality Goals Goal Objective Nutrient input will be decreased by filtering runoff from the agricultural fields Decrease nutrient levels. through restored native vegetation. The off -site nutrient input will also be absorbed on -site by filtering flood flows through restored floodplain areas, where flood flows can disperse through native vegetation. Decrease sediment input. Sediment from off -site sources will be captured by deposition on restored floodplain areas where native vegetation will slow overland flow velocities. Decrease water temperature and increase Planted riparian trees will shade the project features as they mature, reducing dissolved oxygen thermal pollution. concentrations. Create appropriate Riparian areas will be restored by treating invasive vegetation and planting terrestrial habitat. native vegetation. Permanently protect the project Parcel from A conservation easement will be recorded on the Parcel. harmful uses. 2.2 Existing Parcel Conditions The proposed buffer and nutrient offset mitigation project includes approximately 36.7 acres of open row crop fields along Long Pond Branch, one unnamed tributary (UT1), and three ditches (Ditches A, B, and D). Currently the fields are planted with corn, wheat, or soybeans adjacent to project streams and ditches. The Parcel easement boundary will extend from Top of Bank to 200 feet. (Figure 3). Long Pond Branch flows south, beginning as a straightened ditch (Ditch A) and becoming an intermittent stream. UT1 is an intermittent stream that flows east, joining Long Pond Branch. Ditch B and Ditch D flow east and west respectively into Ditch A, no credit is being proposed on Ditch B and Ditch D. In general, this area has maintained its rural, farming character over the last 60 years with only minor changes in land cover (see historical aerials in the appendix). This consistency in land use within the project watershed indicates that watershed processes affecting hydrology, sediment supply, and nutrient and pollutant delivery have not varied widely over this time period. With a lack of WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 2 November 2020 developmental pressure, watershed processes and stressors from outside the project limits are likely to remain consistent throughout the implementation, monitoring, and closeout of this project.

Three of the six features assessed were deemed viable by NCDWR to generate buffer mitigation. The Buffer Interpretation /Clarification Memo #2008-019 applies to Ditches B and D where maintenance of diffuse flow onsite is unattainable. The reduction in credit from the memo being applied is documented in Figure 7 and Table 8. There have been no changes to land use in the project area since NCDWR's 2019 site visit. At this site visit, NCDWR also assessed the stream origin and issued the official Stream Origin Determination Letter January 31, 2020. A copy of both the "On -Site Stream Origin Determination for Applicability to Neuse Riparian Buffer Rules" and the "Site Viability for Buffer Mitigation & Nutrient Offset" letters from NCDWR are included in the Appendix and summarized in Table 3.

WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 3 November 2020 2.4 Alternative Mitigation for Buffer Mitigation In addition to buffer restoration on subject streams, per the Consolidated Buffer Mitigation Rules (15A NCAC 02B 0.0295 (o)), alternative mitigation is proposed on the Parcel in the form of buffer preservation of forested land on subject streams. The proposed project is in compliance in the following ways: Preservation on Subject Streams (15A NCAC 02B .0295 (o)(5): • The buffer width is at least 30 feet from the stream (See Figure 8 for buffer zones). The minimum width of riparian areas on this site is 50 feet from top of banks. • The area meets the requirements of 15A NCAC 02R 0.0403(c)(7), (8), and (11) with no known structures, infrastructure, hazardous substances, solid waste, or encumbrances within the mitigation boundary (See Section 2.10 for EDR Radius Report summary). • Mitigation credits for preservation are being requested on no more than 25% of the total area of buffer mitigation (See Table 8 for credit calculations). The following sections describe the existing riparian conditions on the Parcel in terms of watershed, soils, geology, cultural resources, species of concern, regulated floodplain zones, and site constraints. 2.5 Watershed Characterization The Parcel is located within the HUC 03020201170030. All onsite features drain to Long Pond Branch, which flows to Thoroughfare Swamp, Falling Creek, and then eventually into the Neuse River. Thoroughfare Swamp which is classified as C and NSW by NCDWR. Class C waters are designated for recreational use, agriculture, fishing and fish consumption, and the maintenance of biological integrity for wildlife. The NSW designation applies to surface waters that are experiencing excessive growths of microscopic or macroscopic vegetation. The topography of the Parcel, as indicated on the Rougemont USGS 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle, shows mostly low sloped areas with some moderately sloped areas along Long Pond Branch's confluence with Thoroughfare Swamp (Figure 4). Drainage areas for the project reaches (Figure 5) were delineated using 2-foot contour intervals derived from the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program's 2017 Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. Land uses draining to the project reaches are primarily a mix of active crop fields and woodlands. The watershed areas and current land use are summarized in Table 4, below. Table 4: Drainage Areas and Associated Land Use Reach Name Mitigation Area Watershed Area Land Use (acres) (acres) 14% forested; 37% managed herbaceous Long Pond Branch 28 497 cover/pasture; 37%woody wetland, 6%shrub, 6% impervious Ditch A 21 183 18%forested, 68% managed herbaceous cover/pasture, 6%impervious, 8%shrub UT1 4 55 2%forested; 94%managed herbaceous cover/pasture; 4%shrub 2.6 Geology and Soils The Parcel is located in the Coastal Plain physiographic province. The landscape of the Coastal Plain is characterized by flat lands to gently rolling hills and valleys. Elevations range from sea level to 600 feet. The Coastal Plain largely consists of marine sedimentary rocks comprised of sand, clay, and limestone WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 4 November 2020 that formed through the deposition of estuarine and marine sediments within the last 140 million years. According to the Geologic Map of North Carolina (1985), the underlying geology of the proposed mitigation parcel is mapped as the Black Creek Formation which is described as gray to brown lignitic clay that contains thin beds and laminae of fine-grained micaceous sand and thick lenses of cross - bedded sand. Glauconitic, fossiliferous clayey sand lenses are present in the upper portion of the unit. The proposed Parcel is mapped by the Wayne County Soil Survey. Project area soils are mapped primarily as Rains Sandy Loam, eroded Norfolk Loamy Sand, Dragston Loamy Sand, Wagram Loamy Sand, and Bibb Sandy Loam. These soils are described below in Table 5. Long Pond Branch, UT1, and Ditch A are all depicted as streams on the 1974 NRCS Soil Survey provided in Figure 6. Table 5: Project Soil Types and Descriptions Soil Name Description Rains sandy loam (Ra) This soil is poorly drained and found in depressions and flats in areas between streams. Slopes are 0-2% with moderate infiltration and slow surface runoff. Norfolk Loamy Sand, 2-6% These are well -drained soils with moderate infiltration and slow surface slope (NRB2) runoff. It is low in natural organic matter content. Dragston Loamy Sand (Dr) These soils are moderately well drained with moderate infiltration and slow surface runoff. Wagram Loamy Sand, 0-6 The soils are well drained. Infiltration is moderate and surface runoff is low. percent Slopes (WaB) The soils are poorly drained. Infiltration is slow and surface runoff is low. Bibb Sandy Loam (Bb) Source: Wayne County Soil Survey, USDA-NRCS, http://efotg.nres.usda.gov 2.7 Existing Vegetative Communities Existing vegetation within the Parcel is primarily comprised of active row crop fields of soybeans with narrow streamside thickets shown on Figure 3. Of the vegetation within the stream side thickets pines (Pinus spp.) Oaks (Quercus spp.) and Tulip Poplars (Liriodendron tulipifera) are the dominant canopy class. Green Briar (Smilax spp.) and River cane (Arundinaria spp.) make up the herbaceous growth. A small presence of Chinese privet (Ligustrum sinense) and Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonicahas) have been noted along Long Pond Branch south of the confluence with UT1. 2.8 Threatened and Endangered Species The NC Natural Heritage Program (NHP) database and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Information for Planning and Consultation database (IPaC) were searched for federally listed threatened and endangered plant and animal species in Wayne County, NC. One listed endangered species and two species proposed for listing as endangered or threatened were identified: the red -cockaded woodpecker (Picoides borealis), the River waterdog (Necturus lewisi), and Carolina madtom (Notorus furiousus). Wildlands performed a pedestrian survey of the project parcel on January 22, 2020. It was determined that there is no suitable habitat for any of the listed species; therefore, the project will have "no effect" on the federally listed species. The USFWS Self -Certification Letter packet and the USFWS response letter agreeing with the determinations are included in the appendix. WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 5 November 2020 2.9 Cultural Resources There are no existing structures in the project area. The Parcel is not located near any sites listed on the National Register with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). SHPO was contacted with request for review and comment on June 12, 2020. SHPO responded on July 17, 2020 and requested the area south of Britt Road be investigated for possible archeological resources. The investigation will be completed by a certified archeologist and approved by SHPO prior to any land disturbing activity on the Parcel. The SHPO response and request are included in the Appendix. 2.10 FEMA Floodplain Compliance No grading activities are proposed in the floodplain, so a floodplain development permit will not be required. No hydraulic modeling is proposed for this project. 2.11 Parcel Location, Parcel Constraints, and Access The Parcel is accessible via a gravel driveway off Britt Road. There are no internal easement breaks within the project area, Britt road separates the parcel into two areas. The road is not included in the credits calculated for the project. There are no other known constraints on the proposed Parcel. 2.12 Other Environmental Conditions An EDR Radius Map Report with Geocheck was ordered for the Parcel through Environmental Data Resources, Inc. on June 11, 2020. Neither the target property nor the adjacent properties were listed in any of the Federal, State, or Tribal environmental databases searched by EDR. There were no known or potentially hazardous waste sites identified within or immediately adjacent to the project area. The Executive Summary of the EDR report is included in the Appendix. 3.0 Site Protection Instrument The land required for planting, management, and stewardship of the mitigation project includes portions of the parcels listed in Table 6. The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long term stewardship, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. Table 6: Site Protection Instrument Site Deed Book Acreage Landowner PIN County Protection and Page Instrument Number to be Protected 2534-24-0337 Best, Kenneth Brent and Bryan 2534-23-1767 Melrose Best 2534-13-7367 Wayne Conservation Easement To Be Recorded 36.7 Grantham, George L. and Debra 2534-20-2843 H. Grantham 2534-21-0806 4.0 Mitigation Work Plan The project will restore agriculturally impacted land along Long Pond Branch, UT1, and Ditch A on the Parcel to a protected riparian corridor, improving the ecological function of the area. The project design will ensure that no adverse impacts to existing riparian buffers occur. Figure 7 illustrates the conceptual design for the Parcel. Figure 8 further depicts the riparian buffer zones for the Parcel. WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 6 November 2020 4.1 Parcel Preparation The land use within 200 feet from top of bank of the project features has been maintained and cleared for row crop cultivation except for a few small forested areas along Long Pond Branch. Those forested areas will be preserved. Areas slated for restoration will require little site preparation because the land has been maintained in agriculture; therefore, soil disturbance during planting of the project will be minimal. There is riparian enhancement planned along Long Pond Branch south of the confluence with UT1 that requires supplemental planting and invasive species treatment which is described in more detail in Section 4.3 below. The culvert on Ditch B near the confluence of Ditch A will be removed. Minor grading will be done on Ditch A at the confluence with Ditch B to stabilize the bank. The disturbed areas will be seeded immediately for soil stabilization with a mixture of rye grain (Secale cereale) and German millet (Setaria itlaica). 4.2 Riparian Area Restoration Activities Riparian area restoration will involve planting appropriate native tree species along the riparian corridor. Vegetation management and herbicide applications may be needed over the first few years of tree establishment in the riparian restoration areas to prevent encroachment of undesirable species that may out -compete the planted native vegetation. Tree species planted across the riparian areas of the Parcel will include a mixture of the species listed in Table 7 below. Table 7: Selected Tree Species Species Common Name Density Forest Strata Quercus phellos Willow Oak 15% Canopy Platanus occidentalis Sycamore 15% Canopy Betula nigra River Birch 15% Canopy Populus deltoides Eastern Cottonwood 15% Canopy Quercus michauxii Swamp Chestnut Oak 15% Canopy Acer negundo Boxelder 15% Subcanopy Quercus shumardii Shumard Oak 15% Canopy Magnolia virginiana Sweetbay Magnolia 10% Canopy Trees will be planted at a density sufficient to meet the performance standards outlined in the Rule 15A NCAC 02B .0295 of 260 planted trees per acre at the end of five years. No one tree species will be greater than 50% of the established stems. An appropriate seed mix including native grasses and pollinator friendly forbs will be applied to provide temporary and permanent ground cover for soil stabilization, wildlife forage, and reduction of sediment loss during rain events in areas without existing herbaceous cover, such as where the bank stabilization and culvert removal work is being done. Potential permanent seed species include redtop panicgrass (Panicum rigidulum), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), blackeyed susan (Rudbeckia hirta), bur -marigold (Bidens aristosa), switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), and fox sedge (Carex vulpinoidea). The proposed planting area includes both the areas identified as Buffer Restoration and Nutrient Offset Credits on Figure 7. Planting is scheduled for March 2021. WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 7 November 2020 4.3 Riparian Area Enhancement Activities The revegetation plan for the buffer enhancement areas under 15A NCAC 02B .0295(n) will include planting supplemental bare root trees listed in Table 7 and controlling invasive species growth, specifically the Japanese honeysuckle and Chinese privet. Prior to planting Wildlands will apply foliar application of an aquatic -safe herbicide to Japanese honeysuckle. Wildlands will also implement a cut stump treatment of Chinese privet in the enhancement area with an appropriate aquatic -safe herbicide. The proposed supplemental planting area includes the area identified as Buffer Enhancement on Figure 7. 4.4 Riparian Area Preservation Activities There will be no parcel preparation work done in the buffer preservation areas, as allowed under 15A NCAC 02B .0295(o). There are sections along Long Pond Branch of mature hardwood forest that will be protected in perpetuity by a conservation easement (Figure 7). No additional treatment or planting is planned for these areas of the project. 5.0 Monitoring and Maintenance Plan 5.1 Monitoring Protocol Permanent vegetation monitoring plots will be installed and evaluated within the buffer restoration and enhancement areas to measure the survival of the planted trees. The plots will be randomly placed throughout the planted riparian areas. A total of 25 plots will be established within the riparian buffer restoration and enhancement areas and will be randomly placed such that the plots are representative of the buffer mitigation and nutrient offset credit areas (Figure 9). The size of individual quadrants will be 100 square meters. Vegetation assessments will be conducted and follow the Carolina Vegetation Survey (CVS) Level 2 Protocol for Recording Vegetation (2008). A reference photo will be taken from the southwestern corner of each of the 25 plots. Overview photos will be taken using a drone each monitoring year and provided in the annual reports. All planted stems will be marked with flagging tape and recorded. Planting is scheduled for March 2021. The first annual monitoring activities will commence at the end of the first growing season, at least five months after planting has been completed and no earlier than the fall season. Species composition, height, and survival rates will be evaluated on an annual basis by plot. The total number of volunteer woody stems will also be documented and reported. The measure of vegetative success for the Parcel will be the survival of at least four native hardwood tree species, where no one species is greater than 50% of the established planted stems, and an established density of at least 260 planted trees per acre at the end of monitoring year five. Appropriate and desirable native volunteer species may be included in the Parcel's density to meet the performance standards with NCDWR approval. The Sponsor shall submit the annual monitoring report to NCDWR by December 315Y of each year for five consecutive years and will follow the terms and conditions of the Long Pond Branch Mitigation Banking Instrument (MBI). 5.2 Parcel Maintenance If the Parcel or a specific component of the Parcel fails to achieve the success criteria outlined in Section 5.1, adaptive measures will be developed and/or appropriate remedial actions will be implemented. Site maintenance will be performed to correct any identified problems on the Parcel that have a high likelihood of affecting project success. Such items include, but are not limited to, fire, flooding, drought, WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 8 November 2020 or insects that cause excess tree mortality. Any actions implemented will be designed to achieve the success criteria and will include a work schedule and updated monitoring criteria. Any parcel maintenance performed will be included in the monitoring report for that year. A rigorous herbicide schedule may need to be implemented in the first few years of tree establishment in the restoration areas to prevent establishment of invasive species that may out -compete the planted native vegetation. The only herbicides used on the Parcel will be aquatic approved herbicides that will be applied in accordance with North Carolina Department of Agriculture rules and regulations. The easement boundary will be checked annually as part of monitoring activities. Easement boundary conditions as well as any maintenance performed will be reported in the annual monitoring reports to NCDWR. If mowing is deemed necessary by the Sponsor during the monitoring period, the Sponsor must receive approval from NCDWR prior to conducting any mowing activities within Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the Neuse buffers to ensure that no buffer violations have occurred. 5.3 Easement Boundaries Easement boundaries will be identified in the field to ensure clear distinction between the Parcel and adjacent properties. Boundaries may be identified by marker, post, tree -blazing, or other means as allowed by site conditions and/or conservation easement prior to the NCDWR As -Built inspection. Boundary markers that have been disturbed, damaged, or destroyed will be repaired and/or replaced on an as needed basis. Contact information for the conservation easement holder will be included on easement markers. 6.0 Financial Assurance and Long -Term Management 6.1 Financial Assurances Following approval of the Long Pond Branch Bank Parcel Development Package, the Sponsor shall provide 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 Bank Parcel Development Package (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 monitoring and maintenance plan but not less than $100,000.00. The Performance/Maintenance Bond shall apply at the inception of the monitoring period for a term of one year and be extended annually for a minimum of five years. Upon NCDWR approval, this may be lowered each year based on the adjusted cost to complete the monitoring. Performance bonds for monitoring shall be renewed at least annually to cover the next years monitoring period, with confirmation of renewal provided to NCDWR with each annual monitoring report when applicable. NCDWR reserves the right to alter the credit release schedule if monitoring reports are submitted without proof of bond renewals when applicable. 6.2 Long-term Management The Parcel will remain in private ownership, protected in its entirety by an approved NCDWR long term stewardship, and will be managed under the terms detailed in an approved NCDWR conservation easement. The long-term manager will be responsible for periodic inspection of the Parcel to ensure that the restrictions documented in the recorded easement are upheld in perpetuity. WLong Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel BPDP HUC 03020201 Page 9 November 2020 7.0 Mitigation Potential Of the 36.70 acres protected under the conservation easement, the mitigation activity for 31.31 acres is riparian restoration. Of that 31.8 acres of restoration, 5.48 acres is proposed for buffer mitigation credit and 26.32 acres is proposed for nutrient offset credit. There is also 1.92 acres of preservation and 0.71 acres of enhancement within the conservation easement proposed for riparian buffer credit. The Buffer Interpretation /Clarification Memo #2008-019 applies to Ditches B and D where maintenance of diffuse flow onsite is unattainable, therefore a total of 8,700 square feet is removed from the creditable area at the top of Ditches B and D. The mitigation credit calculations were derived based on Wildlands' conceptual design for maximum ecological uplift. The management objectives, mitigation type, and proposed amount of buffer mitigation are presented in Tables 8 and 9, below. The buffer restoration areas are viable for either riparian buffer credits or nutrient offset credits and can be converted upon receiving written approval by NCDWR if within the first 100 feet from top of bank for the areas on Long Pond Branch and UT1. There will be three credit ledgers for the project: Buffer Restoration, Buffer Enhancement and Preservation, and Nitrogen.

Olive Neuse 03020201 Dear Ms. Eckardt, On December 2, 2019, Katie Merritt, with the Division of Water Resources (DWR), received a request from you on behalf of Wildlands Engineering, Inc (Wildlands) for a site visit near the above - referenced site in the Neuse River Basin within the 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Code 03020201. The site visit was to determine the potential for riparian buffer mitigation and nutrient offset within a proposed Easement Boundary, which is more accurately shown in the attached map labeled "Concept Map" prepared by Wildlands. On January 22, 2020, Ms. Merritt performed a site assessment of the subject site. Staff with Wildlands were also present. Ms. Merritt's evaluation of the features onsite and their associated mitigation determination for the riparian areas are provided in the table below. This evaluation) was made from Top of Bank JOB) and landward 200' from each feature for buffer mitigation pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295 (effective November 1, 2015) and for nutrient offset credits pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0240.

Page 2 of 3 Long Pond Branch Site Wildlands Engineering, Inc. February 19, 2020 Determinations provided in the table above were made using a proposed easement boundary showing proposed mitigation areas. Maps representing the proposal for the Site are attached to this letter and initialed by Ms. Merritt on February 19, 2020. Substantial changes to the proposed easement boundary could affect the Site's potential to generate buffer and nutrient offset credits. This letter does not constitute an approval of this Site to generate buffer and nutrient offset credits. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0295, a mitigation proposal and a mitigation plan shall be submitted to DWR for written approval prior to conducting any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters for buffer mitigation credit. Pursuant to 15A NCAC 02B .0240, a proposal regarding a proposed nutrient load -reducing measure for nutrient offset credit shall be submitted to DWR for approval prior to any mitigation activities in riparian areas and/or surface waters. All vegetative plantings, performance criteria and other mitigation requirements for riparian restoration, enhancement and preservation must follow the requirements in 15A NCAC 02B .0295 to be eligible for buffer and/or nutrient offset mitigation credits. For any areas depicted as not being viable for nutrient offset credit above, one could propose a different measure, along with supporting calculations and sufficient detail to support estimates of load reduction, for review by the DWR to determine viability for nutrient offset in accordance with 15A NCAC 02B .0240. This viability assessment will expire on February 19, 2022 or upon approval of a mitigation plan by the DWR, whichever comes first. This letter should be provided in any nutrient offset, buffer, stream or wetland mitigation plan for this Site.

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 06/11/2020 Event Code: 04EN2000-2020-E-03020 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/migratory birds/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.

A USGS topographic Map and an Overview Site Map showing the approximate project area are enclosed. The topographic figure was prepared from the Dobbersville, 7.5 minute topographic quadrangle and the site is located at latitude 35.235242, 78.222302 longitude. The Long Pond Branch Mitigation Bank Parcel is being developed to provide nutrient offset and buffer mitigation. The project includes restoring, enhanceing, and preserving the riparian areas adjacent to streams and ditches in order to help reduce non -point source contaminant discharges to downstream waters. The site has historically been disturbed due to agricultural use, primarily row crops. No architectural structures or archaeological artifacts have been observed or noted during preliminary surveys of the site for restoration purposes. We ask that you review the site based on the attached information to determine the presence of any historic properties. We thank you in advance for your timely response and cooperation. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have concerning the extent of site disturbance associated with this project.

We have reviewed the materials provided and offer the following comments. There are no recorded archaeological sites within the project boundaries. However, the project area has never been systematically surveyed to determine the location or significance of archaeological resources. The portion of the proposed mitigation bank located south of Britt Road contains ridges adjacent to Long Pond Branch near its confluence with Thoroughfare Swamp, which are landforms that have a high probability for containing archaeological sites. We recommend that prior to any ground disturbing activities within the project area, a comprehensive archaeological survey be conducted by an experienced archaeologist of the portion of the project area located south of Britt Road. The purpose of this survey will be to identify and evaluate the significance of archaeological sites and cemeteries that may be damaged or destroyed by the proposed project. Please note that our office now requests consultation with the Office of State Archaeology Review Archaeologist to discuss appropriate field methodologies prior to the archaeological field investigation. A list of archaeological consultants who have conducted or expressed an interest in contract work in North Carolina is available at https://archaeology.ncdcr.gov/archaeological-consultant-list. The archaeologists listed, or any other experienced archaeologist, may be contacted to conduct the recommended survey. One paper and one digital copy of all resulting archaeological reports, as well as one digital copy of the North Carolina site form for each site recorded, should be forwarded to the Office of State Archaeology through this office for review and comment as soon as they are available and in advance of any construction or ground disturbance activities. Office of State Archaeology report guidelines are available at https://files.nc.gov/dncr-arch/OSA Guidelines Dec2017.12df. The above comments are made pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's Regulations for Compliance with Section 106 codified at 36 CFR Part 800.
